WELCOME TO CURIOSUM (former Sliperiet)

In April 2019, Sliperiet changed it´s name to Curiosum and merged with the science center Umevatoriet. This autumn we will take the next step. and together with our tenants move into the renewed premises of Sliperiet at Arts Campus at Umeå University.

In 2020 Curiosum will open. A new science center, to inspire young and old with science and technology. We believe curiosity can change the world.

Look out for our new website coming soon!

Results are in: 4615 mm making it a world record


A few weeks ago our ongoing project printing a Tower of Babel with the novel method of Hangprinting gathered a lot of attention.

After some issue with the material feed we ended our experiment at 4615 mm: twice the height of what any commercially available large format 3Dprinter that we know of can achieve as a continous print. 



We are happy to see how the project has spread all over the world- Torbjørn hopes more makers will join the project (you can follow the dev blog here and download files to print your own hangprinter here)
