Bring Design Concepts to Life - 3D printing is a process of making a physical model, which helps users to rapidly build prototyping of their working models. We hope to inspire students to explore new interest in design and help them to bring their creations and design concepts to life.

The 3D Printing Service is offered to current CUHK students, staff and faculty.
