Carson School purchases 3-D printer for designers

Lincoln, Neb.--With support from the Hixson-Lied College of Fine and Performing Arts, the Johnny Carson School of Theatre and Film has purchased a Formlabs Form 2 desktop 3-D printer for theatre design.

 

Assistant Professor of Theatre J.D. Madsen said it’s a stereolithographic, resin-based printer, which creates a higher degree of detail than an extrusion-based or PLC printer.

 

“It goes down as fine as 0.01 microns, which is basically a human hair thick,” he said.
