Who We Are

Our Story

The UBCO 3D Printing Club was originally established in 2017. The current executive team was established in 2019 and has run multiple events with the goal of widespread 3D printing access and knowledge. Despite the current global pandemic the UBCO 3D Printing Club is still dedicated to continue this goal in the upcoming academic years.
