What to Know About Using Our 3D Printers

Our 3D Printers are completely free to use! Before using our 3D printers, you need to attend one of our certification classes where you will learn how to safely use the machines. Once you have been certified, you can reserve time by calling, emailing or visiting the Information Desk. You can reserve 2.5 hour blocks of time on the 3D printers. Your reservation is for all three printers. Children under 12 are welcome to attend the certification classes with an adult guardian.

Our 3D Printers

We have three 3D printers: the Makerbot Replicator 2x, Makerbot Mini and Makerbot 5th Generation. You can print any .STL file on these printers.  The Makerbot Replicator 5th Generation and the MakerBot Mini use ABS plastic filament. The Makerbot 2x uses PSL plastic filament.
