Gumberg’s New 3-D Printer Ready for Use by Staff and Students

Members of the Duquesne campus community can test their creativity with a new 3-D printer in the Gumberg Library.

The cutting-edge CubePro Trio printer, gifted to Gumberg Library by the Bayer School’s Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, has three filament containers that allow users to make prints of different materials and colors.

“We were interested in acquiring the printer in order to make the technology more widely available to the entire Duquesne community,” explained Christie Kliewer, outreach and communications librarian. “Ours is an interdisciplinary space, and we wanted to integrate modern technologies such as this 3-D printer in order to encourage creativity.”

The printer, located in Room 402 C of the library, is currently available on a trial basis for use by appointment only to faculty, staff and students.

Those interested in using the printer can contact Digital Scholarship Librarian Gesina Phillips at to discuss their project or to see the printer in action.

More information about 3-D printing services can be found at the library’s guide center.
