Edmon Low Creative Studios: 3D Printing Studio
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 text. Once finished you must export the model as a .STL file and send the ELCS staff an email to request an assessment appointment with the creative studio staff.
During the assessment, we will first verify that your tag has the required components. Next, 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. Then, we will walk you through levelling the build platform, properly handling and loading the filament, and finally the assessment ends with you printing out your tag as a memento of your completed assessment.
