Interested in 3D printing? Want to know about the many ways this technology can help with your classes? The duPont-Ball is here to help. We have three 3D printers and a 3D scanner. You can use the two MakerBot printers to 3D print from pre-made files, from your own models, or from a scan of your favorite object. The options are endless.
The duPont-Ball Library also owns a UPrint SE Plus 3D printer. The printer offers high-end ABS filament printing with dissolvable rafting/scaffolding. Because of the cost of this machine and the cost of the materials to support it, this printer is restricted to academic print jobs by appointment Monday-Friday beginning at 8:30 am. Print jobs must be completed by 5:00 pm. Other print jobs may be done any time the library is open on the library’s two MakerBot printers which do NOT require reservations.
To reserve a time to use the printer visit this page.
Ask at the Circulation Desk for more information and to use the printers and scanner. These tools are available for student use during the hours the library is open. All 3D printing jobs must be finished 15 minutes before closing time.
