Rooms 035 and 037 – Specialty Work Rooms
Renovations in Rooms 035 and 037 are ongoing throughout spring 2016. Once completed, these spaces will enhance and expand the tool and technology offerings in The Foundry.
These specialty work rooms will feature additional work space, a light machine shop, and a 3D Systems ProX 350. Duke will be one of the first places in the world to have this new system.

This particular machine is currently used to produce medical grade titanium implants. The resolution of the machine is sub 100 micrometer and it has the best surface finish of all Titanium 3D printers.
