3d printer

The library has an Ultimaker 2 3D printer in the 2nd floor Computer Lab. We offer some basic classes about 3D printing, and can print 3D objects from your file. We do not have a 3D scanner at this time, so we can't make a copy of an object you bring in—you will need to send us a file of the object you want printed. Please see our 3D printing procedure page for more details and limitations.
