The School of Informatics and Computing has a 3-D print lab located on campus for SoIC students, faculty, and staff to print 3-D objects for class or personal projects. The lab is equipped with 4 Makerbot printers including 2 Z18 large format printers.
Email our 3-D lab consultants at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions about 3-D printing.
The cost for printing is 20 cents per gram. All users should have a 3-D model file (*.STL, *.OBJ). The 3-D print lab staff offers one-on-one consultations to help finalize your model for printing. One-on-one consultations are required for the first print.
Users are responsible for responding to inquiries from SoIC staff regarding their designs. Lack of timely response may result in delay or cancellation of print requests.
The time it takes to print your models depends on the size, quality, and detail of the model you are printing. Printing can take anywhere between a couple of hours to several days depending on the print time and amount of models in the queue.
