Polymer Lab

Located in downtown Eugene at 942 Olive Street, the Polymer Lab provides support to Product Design students, with a focus on prototyping and model building.

The lab is set up as a printer farm that has open access to current students. In addition to 3d printing, we also provide a dedicated area for working with plastics and a variety of tools. There are computers available with current modeling and slicing programs.
