A group of MUN Archaeology students were in the Makerspace learning CAD (computer assisted design) and doing some 3d printing. The group approached the Makerspace as they are interested in exploring the use of 3d printers within their profession. This is a free workshop that The Commons is providing which includes a small 3d printed artifact for each participant which they will have designed themselves.
