Edmon Low Creative Studios: 3D Printing Studio
The Edmon Low Library building and our branch libraries are closed until further notice. While in-person services will be unavailable at this time, we will continue to offer services virtually.
Visit library.okstate.edu/coronavirus to learn more about our virtual services.
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 3D text. Once finished, export your model as a .STL file, then submit your file and fill out the form below.
During the assessment, we will guide you through the process of importing your object into 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 Requirements.
Once you've completed your assessment, you can request print time using the form below.
We look forward to seeing you!
