The IDEAlab offers 3D printing for SAU students, faculty, and staff! 3D print jobs can be submitted through the request form here. If you have questions, please contact Media Services (x6242) for more information!
While our Lulzbot TAZ 6 does a great job printing, it is a little tricky to operate! To protect you and our 3D printer, only Library staff are allowed to run a 3D print job. Please use the request form to submit your file and we will do the printing!
Absolutely! If you are comfortable/familiar with 3D printing, you can definitely submit your own project settings. Please contact Media Services (x6242, email@example.com) for more information about how to submit your own project settings.
Generally, we will attempt a print twice. If the print fails on the second try there may be something wrong with the file and we will contact you to troubleshoot.
Possibly! Our 3D printer uses 2.85 mm filament, but not all filaments are a good match for our print head. If you would like to bring in your own filament, please contact Media Services to get approval. 3D printing, like other Media Services productions, are priced at cost, so there is no charge for using the 3D printer with your own filament. However, the printer will still need to be operated by Library staff.
