Greg Logos

Greg's Schools

The MakerLab receives many requests from students and faculty for 3D design and printing assistance. One recent request was from Greg Fisher, a marketing doctoral student here at Illinois. Later this week, Greg will be interviewing for a job as an assistant professor at a number of universities, including Marquette, Missouri, North Carolina State, Notre Dame, and Wyoming. During his interview, Greg plans to discuss some of his recent research on the factors that influence user adoption of 3D printed objects. Thus, he felt it would be nice to have a 3D printed object that he could leave behind after each interview. Greg supplied our Lab with a set of 2D logos for each school. Our intrepid MakerLab Guru, Danny developed 3D designs based on scans of these logos and then printed them using our MakerBot Replicator 3D printers. The result is a memorable souvenir of Greg’s talk. How can 3D printing enhance your career?
