3D Microfabrication Shared Facility


The 3D Microfabrication Shared Facility (3MSF) is a South Dakota State University (SDSU) campus shared facility, largely managed within the Biology and Microbiology Department, and the Department of Agricultural and Biosystems Engineering. Facilities are located in the lower level of Edgar S. McFadden Biostress Building (SNP) in room 047D and 053. Nicholas C. Butzin is the lead manager of 3MSF. It houses different equipment for microfabrication, but the main instrument is a Photonic Professional GT2 from Nanoscribe. This 3D printer was purchased in 2020, is ultra-precise, prints in high resolution from 0.16 micron (about 600 times smaller than a human hair) to millimeter scales, and allows for rapid microfabrication.
