  • Log into the 'Reserve Equipment' calendar
  • Choose an available time slot

Note: Instrument calendars may syncd with your haverford google calendar. To do this please send George Neusch your email address and the name of the instrument calendar you would like to sync.Then you will be able to stretch your time slot over multiple hours in a single day without choosing the slots individually. Please do not use the duplicate function in "edit event details." That function does not appear to sync properly with the calendar on this webpage.

Contact George Neusch if you need help operating any instrumentation.

3D Scanners

3D Scanner

Next Engine 3D Scanner HD 2020i

This 3D scanner allows the user to scan a three-dimensional object to a data file. The object can then be replicated with a 3D printer, if desired. The 2020i is capable of scanning facets (portions of the 3D object) of up to 13.5" x 10.1", with a maximum accuracy of 0.005". Larger objects can be imaged in multiple portions. Each scan takes ~2min for acquisition and rendering. A manual is currently not available without a proof of purchase. Please contact George Neusch with questions.
