3D Printing

We are equipped with a Cubify CubeX 3D and Prusa i3 MK2 extrusion printers capable of printing objects up to 10 inches square. It can print in layers as thin as 100 microns and uses either ABS or PLA material.

To have a 3D printed object follow these 3 easy steps
  1. We have PLA material here. No need to purchase your own at this point.
  2. Convert your project into an STL file format and bring it with you.
  3. Come down to 2428 Randall Lab to discuss your project.
It can take some time for the process to complete, once it is done we will contact you. You can swing by the CaTS office between 8:00 AM and 5:PM Monday through Friday to pick up the object.

Your object may have extra material that was used to support it during the print process that will require removal.

Our service is "first come, first served," from the time you arrive at our office with your file ready to print, However, jobs submitted by local departmental users will have the highest priority. The consultants will make their best effort to print your object. However, we cannot guarantee results in every circumstance.
