The University of Utah is home to a huge array of creative expertise and emerging technology. Creative Spaces acts a connection point between innovators across the university by providing access to workshops, equipment, consultation and referral services.
The Marriott Library is home to several types of 3D printers, scanners, and other related technologies. While we offer basic 3D printing services to University affiliated persons, other technology, such as 3D scanning and vinyl cutting, are offered without dedicated support. It is recommended that a user come with a basic understanding of how to use equipment or be willing to investigate instruction manuals.
Printing technology: Fused filament fabrication
Filament Diameter: 3.0mm
Build box capacity: 11x11x9.8"
To learn more about these printers and start a print, see the Knowledge Commons 3D printing website.
The Marriott Library offers access to a wide range of Virtual Reality equipment, including all of the major head-mounted displays (HMD).
A Microsoft Hololens Development Kit is available for 4-hour checkout. This is a standalone augmented reality device that does not require a separate computer to use. Creating new holographic apps is not difficult, but requires users to have their own development computer. Users are responsible for their own Microsoft account creation and must remove their credentials by resetting the device.
There are three Oculus Rift, and three HTC Vive Virtual Reality systems available for 4-hour checkout. These items require a significant setup process and a computer that meets the minimum requirements.
Two Oculus Rift Virtual Reality Headsets are deployed in the Knowledge Commons, directly across from the 3D printers. Students, faculty, and staff may check out Oculus Touch controllers from the nearby help desk.
A Playstation VR headset is available for checkout from the reserve desk. This headset must be used on the Playstation 4 located in the northwest corner of the Knowledge Commons (near the Hoopes Seminar Room 2130N).
