3D Printing Services

We have three 3D printers at the Makerspace, available for patrons use. You may use a 3D printer on your own by completing mandatory training, or by participating in a scheduled demonstration (please see the calendar for upcoming dates). Although use of 3D printers is free, we do charge $0.05 per gram of plastic used.

How Do They Work?

3D printers build three-dimensional objects out of plastic by extruding hot plastic layer after layer, building an object from the ground up. You may use an existing model downloaded from www.thingiverse.com, or you can design your own model by using 123D Design. All of our 3D printers print using PLA plastic, a biodegradable plastic made from corn.
