The UA 3D Prototyping Lab is open to anyone on campus to test the bounds of additive manufacturing, or 3D printing. The lab is operated by the College of Engineering, and its staff can assist in printing models personally designed for class, design groups, research, senior designs or personal use.

The team aims to promote efficient access to quality 3D production. The lab can receive a design created in one of the supported software programs and print the part, reducing manufacturing or shipping delays.

The lab reserves the right to refuse printing questionable objects including, but not limited to, weaponry, copyrighted materials or parts intended for commercial sale.
