Using the Printer
First, review your model using the 3D printing guide to ensure that it is ready to print. If you need assistance with this process, limited consultation is available at the SCS desk 10am–2pm Monday through Thursday.
Once your model is ready to go, bring the completed STL file to the SCS desk on a flash drive and SCS staff will walk you through the submission process.
The minimum turnaround time is 2 business days. However, depending on the current print volume, the wait may be longer. You will be e-mailed when your job is complete and ready for pickup.
A NextEngine 3D Laser Scanner, allowing you to create a 3D model from a physical object, is available for use in the Knowledge Commons. Visit the SCS desk to get started, or see the 3D scanning guide for more details.
