Never used a 3D printer before? Don’t worry, just ask the lab monitors to show you how to do it, and they will be happy to help. This lab is not only a place for experienced inventors to turn ideas into reality, it is also a place for newcomers to learn and expand their skills as well. The lab also serves as a hub for creativity and a place to hang out.
