The McNeese Innovation Center is proud to announce the addition of new, cutting-edge technology. A 3D printer, 3D scanner, and 3D milling machine are now available to students, faculty, and local business and industry in Southwest Louisiana to aid in prototyping new products. 3D printing is a form of additive manufacturing in which layers of plastics are built up to form a 3D object. 3D scanning is a process where a laser is pointed at an object and a camera records the location of the laser to build a 3D model. This model can be manipulated and printed or milled. 3D milling is a form of subtractive manufacturing in which layers of material are removed from a block of raw material using a cutting tool.Contact: Nikos Kiritsis, Executive Director
