Do Space offers the Omaha community access to new and emerging technologies such as 3D printers and laser cutters to inspire a new interest in design and help the community bring their creations to life. 3D technologies can be used for crafting, prototyping, and a host of other applications for hobbyists and professionals alike. 3D Lab equipment is free to use for Do Space members and can be reserved online. Staff and volunteers are available to assist in the basic use of the equipment as time/staffing allows. Those needing extended one-on-one assistance are encouraged to submit a mentor request. Do Space also offers regular classes on the different technologies available in the 3D Lab.
