Edmon Low Library

Edmon Low Creative Studios: 3D Printing Studio

 

How to Get Access:

In order to get access to the library's 3D printers, you must first model a simple keychain tag using any CAD software of your choice.  

(If you are unfamiliar with any modeling software we recommend Blender.  It is a powerful, open source, multi-platform compatible modeling software whose website has a vast library of tutorials to get you started.)

Your required model must contain: a cylinder, a cube, a torus/ring, and some custom 3D text.  Once finished, export your model as a .STL file, then attach the file to an email and send it to us along with a time that you can meet for your assessment appointment.

During the assessment, we will first verify that your tag has the required components. Then, we will guide you through the process of importing your object to the 3D printer's software and how to properly arrange it to get the best print results.  Next, we will walk you through leveling the build platform, properly handling and loading the filament, and finally the assessment ends with you printing out your modeled tag as a memento of your completed assessment.

For more complete details see the: 3D Printing Assessment Form

Once you've completed your assessment, you can submit print requests via email with an attached screenshot of your pre-rendered print job, and we will then book you the time on one of our seven 3D printers.
