Five years ago, CITRIS launched the first makerspace on the UC Berkeley campus: the CITRIS Invention Lab. This fall, the CITRIS Invention Lab is announcing its own first: a lending library for portable 3D printers http://citris-uc.org/gofab-citris-invention-lab-lending-library/?utm_source=UCB+Researchers&utm_campaign=051a8d7d45-CITRIS_NEWS_2017_11_15&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_c1a3514ec0-051a8d7d45-332381233&mc_cid=051a8d7d45&mc_eid=41c30b43f1
Dash Robotics, one of the first groups working in the CITRIS Invention Lab back in 2013, has teamed up with Mattel and now you can find and own your own interactive robot. Congrats! https://techcrunch.com/2017/10/11/mattel-releases-biologically-inspired-foldable-robot-toys/
CITRIS Invention Lab at UC Berkeley is excited to announce the launch of the first of its kind – a 3D Printer Lending Library! Open to all Maker Pass Holders, the Invention Lab is offering a suite of 3D printers that are available for checkout to extend your creativity and making outside of the lab, into your living room, dorm, kitchen, cafe, or personal workspace.

Introducing our fabulous Fall 2017 Super Users – These are the amazing students that not only help keep the lab open after hours and weekends but truly make the Invention Lab the magical place it is. Thank you again! Adam Hutz (Rhetoiric PhD) Mai Nguyen (Itegrative Bio PhD) Nicole Repina (BioEngineering PhD) Molly Nicholas (EECS/BCNM PhD) Amir Mousavi (EECS R&D Eng) Corten Singer (EECS MS) Daniel Lim (ME PhD) And our new Super Users in training: Uzoma Nwakuche (EECS) Jeremy Warner (EECS PhD) Oliver Moldow (Architecture)
Ultimaker 2 Extended+ is one of the most advanced, accurate and reliable desktop 3D printers around. And at the Invention Lab we have 2 of them for you to create with. Engineered to perform, the Ultimaker 2 Extended+ is reliable, efficient, and user-friendly. Thanks to its support of a wide range of materials, it’s suitable for a huge variety of applications, from prototypes to customized tools. It’s a great all-around 3D printer that delivers consistent results. Build Volume: 223 x 223 x 305 mm (8.8 x 8.8 x 12 inches)
Continuing to expand our 3D printing capabilities, we've added a new Form 2 SLA printer. This is a significant upgrade from our previous Form 1 SLA printer. The Form 2 support event larger build volume and incredible resolution. At the heart of the machine is a powerful optical engine – a 250mW precision laser is guided by custom-built galvanometers, delivering big prints with spectacular detail. The Form 2 allows for feature size of 300 microns, layer thickness of 25-100 microns and a build volume of 145 x 145 x 175 mm. It also features an integrated resin system that allows for…
We're excited to announce our Fall 2017 Invention Lab Fellowship Award recipients: Crystal Lee (Integrative Biology), Jason Cress (Music Composition), HungJu Wang (BioE), Sina Dabiri (BioE), Siew Hong Ma (ME), Patrick Martin-Tuite (Joint Medical Program), Richard Barnes (ERG/PhD Student), Olivier Spleethoff (ME), Theo Fedronic (ME), Qiaohao Liang (MSE & EECS), Amay Saxena (EECS & Math), Aaryaman Sen (CogSci + ISF), and Raghav Jalana (ME). We look forward to watching their projects evolve within the Invention Lab this semester.
