Printing Studio

The Foundry Printing Studio has a variety of 2D printers, some of which can be accessed 24/7 and some of which require a Scout’s assistance to use. Printing is free in the Foundry so we ask that all things printed here relate to the students' creative exploration. Fliers and posters printed in multiples should be printed at the Canon Copy Center (canoncopycenter@babson.edu).

Once you have completed the General Woodshop Training you can request training on individual Specialty Tools.
