JHU students created a Baltimore-themed gingerbread house based on the iconic Bromo Seltzer Tower. The DMC’s 3-D printer was used to create the top of the tower, and the ice cream cone trees were lit from the inside with LEDs. An Arduino motorized fondant Raven skated on a mirrored pond


Detail view of MakerBot

  One weekend in February 2011 several students built a 3D printer from a MakerBot kit. We hope to be taking orders for custom 3D prints soon; look for 3D object design workshops next fall! If you have an idea for a project that would utilize our 3D printer, please contact
