IMS Resource Lab Now Offers Several New Media Tools
September 18, 2017
This summer, Information Technology refreshed the IMS Resource Lab equipment and software.
Updates include several new 27” iMacs with retina screens that can handle 4k video editing, virtual reality development, and 3D modeling.
Software upgrades include the addition of the full Adobe Creative Suite on each machine—giving all of the computers the most recent versions of Photoshop, Premiere, Illustrator, Lightroom, and more.
Additionally, a Lulzbot Taz 6 3D printer is now available to L&C community members. The new printer allows for a wider range of materials like magnetic plastic, circuit printing media, and industrial strength plastics.
Experimentation is encouraged and there are many free models available from sites like Thingiverse that you may download and print. Faculty, staff, and students can deduct 3D printing from their L&C print balance.
Please either visit the Resource Lab with a file in hand, or send a file with a print request to firstname.lastname@example.org. They can help you prep and print the file, or let you know if it’s just not something our printer can handle.
