Standley Systems donates state-of-the-art 3D printer to Nash Library MakerSpace


Passionate about the communities in which they serve, Standley Systems recently donated a state-of-the-art 3D printer to the University of Science and Arts of Oklahoma’s MakerSpace in Nash Library. The printer will soon be available to all USAO students, staff and faculty and is completely free to use for educational purposes.

The printer, a ProJet CJP 460Plus, is an ideal piece of equipment for a wide range of applications. Compared to other 3D printers, this model has some of the fastest print speeds available combined with low operating costs.

“We are incredibly thankful to Standley Systems for helping us expand our MakerSpace with this fantastic technology,” said Kelly Brown, vice president for library and information services. “This new 3D printer will allow for the prototyping of objects, the development of novel items and art pieces, and much more. It will be very exciting to see how our students and faculty can leverage this new technology across various academic disciplines."

USAO’s MakerSpace allows students, staff and faculty hands-on access to cutting-edge technology. In line with the university’s interdisciplinary mission, students outside of the STEM majors are encouraged to find creative ways to use the space and enhance their educational experience. The MakerSpace now houses three 3D printers, 10 Pi-Top modular laptops, and high-quality ergonomic chairs.

“Standley Systems entered the 3D technology space early in its implementation into the public,” said President and CEO Tim Elliott. “Education is key in implementing this type of technology and we see the great benefit in educating the future of our workforce. We’re excited to see how USAO can further their research and education by using 3D printing and understanding its many applications. By educating students in Oklahoma, the sky is the limit for our great state.”

Standley Systems is a leader in technology for state agencies and businesses across Oklahoma. Founded in 1934 as The Fred Standley Typewriter Company, Standley Systems has remained on the forefront of office technology. For over 80 years the company has been deeply rooted in Oklahoma and understands the importance of giving back and being tied into the communities they serve.
