3D Printing

3D printers use digital models to create three-dimensional objects by depositing plastic filament (PLA) one layer at a time in a process called fused deposition modeling.

Atkins Library's 3D printers are currently managed by the Technology Support Desk located on the second floor. Please review the 3D Printing Policy before submitting a request for 3D prints. All requests should be submitted through the form below.

Cost

The cost for 3D printing is based on the cost of filament, time, labor, utilities and maintenance. The cost per object is $0.25 per gram, with a minimum cost of $1.00 for each 3D print. All print requests will receive a cost estimate prior to printing. We will wait for your response to the estimate before beginning printing.
