Regular Semester Hours

The 3D Lab closes 1 hour before the library.
Appointments must end by that time.
For current library hours please visit http://memphis.edu/libraries/about/hours/index.php​

Appointments must be made at least 24 Hours in advance

Lab is available during Summer and Winter Break on limited schedule. Please contact the library for details.



The University of Memphis Libraries and Crews Center for Entrepreneurship are collaborating to expand the University 3D printing service.

Now advanced users will be able to reserve the new Makerbot Z18 for an entire day. The Z18 provides a larger service area while utilizing the same intuitive software used in the Library Technology Sandbox.

You will be able to print multiple jobs, or large jobs, without worrying about cancelation.

An advanced user is someone who has completed the 3D training and has used the 3D Lab in the Libraries Technology Sandbox at least twice.
