The Morgan Library has a 3D printer available to students, faculty and staff. It is located across from the Morgan Library Event Hall on a first come, first serve basis.
What you need to print:
- Bring your design on a USB or email it to yourself. You can also use the computer connected to the 3D Printer to access Google Drive or Dropbox.
- If you are using a design off of thingiverse.com, simply upload it using the 3D printer’s computer.
Filament can be purchased at RamTech, located next to the bookstore in the Lory Student Center.
- Printing training is available through the Idea 2 Product Lab, every Wednesday from 4-6pm in the library Event Hall. Register here.
- If you need to schedule an alternative appointment time, contact the lab at: email@example.com or (970) 491-5259
