MakerBot 3D Printer

In March 2013, the Entrepreneurship Lab became the home of Pace University’s first 3D printer.  3D printing technology has become very popular among young entrepreneurs for its ability to create product prototypes at a low cost.  Students can design products on a computer using AutoDesk Ultimate Product Suite, which is a modeling software available at the Entrepreneurship Lab, and use the printer to create the physical product.The MakerBot Replicator 2 has been put to use since its installation at the eLab, creating a number of sample products such as iPhone cases, nuts & bolts, and more.  Pace students use the technology to create prototypes as well. For example, Jewel High is designing a shoe model for her business, while Javier Dutan is working on a unique type of business card.  Additionally, eLab staff members are working on creating a replica of One Pace Plaza as well as other Pace mementos to use as gifts for guest speakers and panelists.  This technology will encourage students to create prototypes for new products right here at Pace University. A Grant from the Verizon Thinkfinity Foundation funded the MakerBot 3D printer.
