Over the past few months, some may have experienced malfunction when it came to entering and exiting through the doors of the Lane University Center. This was due to a broken door part known as the housing unit for the circuit board. The piece protects the circuit board which is responsible for the opening, closing, locking, and unlocking of the door. The University looked into finding a replacement for the part, but the part was outdated and no longer available for purchase. Without this part, the only way for the door to function properly would require the entire door to be replaced —  costing approximately $1,000 for each door. Fortunately, Jon Diamond, program specialist, knew the physics and engineering department had 3D printers. So, he reached out to Duane Miller, Additive Manufacturing Lab Coordinator and academic lab manager for the Physics and Engineering Department, to ask if they could make a replica of the part. more >
