SLU Center for Additive Manufacturing

Established in 2019 through a competitive grant from the Saint Louis University Research Institute, SLU-CAM is a resource for 3D printing, computer aided design and related activities, available to faculty, students and the community at large.

The Center houses two state-of-the-art industrial 3D printers; an FDM printer capable of printing a wide variety of materials, and a polyjet printer, capable of printing different colors and durometers within the same object. The Center has other 3D printers and laser cutters as well. Customers can bring in a CAD file ready to print or a simple sketch that the Center can develop into a printable object. The Center is located in the new Interdisciplinary Science and Engineering Building on SLU’s North Campus. Our goal is to, through our 3D printing expertise and resources, support research, education and interdisciplinary collaboration at SLU, and within the St. Louis community.

Research Institute Grant

The grant that established SLU-CAM came from the Saint Louis University Research Institute, which was founded in 2018 from a historic $50 million gift from Dr. Jeanne and Rex Sinquefield.
