Q. How do I submit a 3D print job?
A. See details on the Submitting page!
Q. What if I don't have an .stl file?
A. Most 3D modelling software should have the option to export as an .stl or .obj file. Please contact us if you need help.
Q. What are the dimensions of the largest thing I can print?
A. Approx 11.2" x 6" x 6.1" (285 x 153 x 155 mm). You may print in parts and attach them later.

A. The minimum charge is $3, and several small pieces can be batched together. Most items under 1.5" x 1.5" x 1.5" are $3. A case or box around 6.5" x 3.5" x 3" costs around $20.
Q. When will my job be finished?
A. In addition to the time required to print, it depends on how many other jobs are waiting to print. We will give you an estimate when you submit your job.
The Marston Science Library, the Education Library, and Health Science Center Library have a Makerbot Replicator 2.
Do you need a higher quality printer? Check out the A2 Fab Lab, located in Architecture & Fine Arts. The lab has a Zcorp ZPrinter 450 and an Objet Eden 260V.
Engineering students: you may print any models that you created yourself at the College of Engineering's 3D Printing Lab in 339 MAE-A. The MAE Rapid Prototyping Facility in 313 MAE-B has a wider range of printers and is open to qualified users.
Do you want an expert to create your customized model? Would you like your model to be printed in a material type that we don't have in the libraries? Here are some options:
