UI Team Looking for Co-PIs for NSF MRI Proposal

July 24, 2017

Are you interested in using Connex3 Polyjet 3-D printer from Stratasys for your research? A team consisting of three faculty members from the Departments of Mechanical Engineering, Animal and Veterinary Science, and Biological Engineering, are looking for an additional two research faculty members from other Departments to form a research team that will submit a NSF MRI proposal to obtain this printer. The research instrument is the first-ever color and multi-material 3D printer with a minimum layer thickness as fine as 16 microns (0.0006 in.). Please note that if we are to be competitive for this grant, the printer is expected to be used for research purposes rather than for manufacturing. For additional details, please contact Professor Tao Xing at
