Due to the generous financial assistances from the College of Natural Sciences, the Department of Mathematics acquired a 3DPrinter (Makerbot Replicator 5) in 2014. The 3DPrinter is being used to produce mathematical models that will help in visualizing mathematical structures, both in teaching and in research.
Currently, in the care of Alexander Hulpke, it has been used already to produce a variety of models for classes ranging from Calculus to graduate classes, as these examples show. See images below:

A model for the largest possible regular symmetry in R3 

Points and lines of a finite projective space. 

A Peano Curve 

The start of pishaped cookie cutters 

A Riemann surface 

A model for rotational symmetry 

A model for Volume in Calculus 

A (skeleton of) a Klein Bottle 

The "umbilicat torus" (a relative of the MÃ¶bius band)
