Overview

3D printing is a process for making a physical object from a three-dimensional digital model, typically by laying down many successive thin layers of a material. This involves heating bioplastic filament and then laying it down in thin layers until a new object emerges.

Squires Library offers 3D printing to students, faculty, and staff. 

3D prints can take many hours to complete. Users should make an appointment for initial setup and check back frequently on print job.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does it cost?

  • Prices are set by IdeaMaker once the file is uploaded.

Can I be given a price estimate?

  • Yes, the software that we use to print allows us to estimate the cost. 

What colors do you have?

  • Black, Red, Blue, Yellow, and Natural

Can I print multiple colors on one object?

  • This is a single filament 3D Printer so it can not print on the same objects two different colors. If you have separate objects that go together then you are able to use different colors. 

Can I watch my object print?

  • Yes, there will be a start time for the print and you are more than welcome to come by and watch your object be printed.
