Have you ever had the desire to try 3D printing? Well, now is your chance. The VC Library has a new 3D Printer, PolyPrinter 229, for students, staff, and members of the public to use.
What You Need
Come in with your finished .stl file, and turn your concept into reality. While staff will help with equipment and basic software support, they are not responsible for helping you design the .stl file. If you are having trouble with finding
or creating a design, a list of helpful resource can be found below.
3D printing is 5 cents/gram; thus the cost of printing depends on the size of your project. Faculty members of VC/UHV can print for free as long as it is for academic purposes.
The 3D printer uses ABS filament, which is safe to use both indoors and outdoors. The filament, comes in several colors:
- Glow Green (white filament that glows green in the dark)
Printing designs are not guaranteed to come out as intended and can be affected by any number of variables. VC Library acknowledges 3D printing limitations and does not take responsibility for failed prints.
