Welcome

University of Memphis 3D Printer Lab

Welcome to the University of Memphis 3D Printer Lab Portal. This is the place you can visit to register a session with the printer, find out what other people are making, or ask questions about the facility.  You don't have to be an engineer to print in 3D. 

STEPS TO PRINT

1. Attend a 3D Print Workshop @UofMLibraries

2. Schedule lab time (see Schedule tab)

3. Upload your file to be printed and fill out form (see 3D Job Form tab)*

* If you are printing files from the scanner these must be uploaded after scanning. If you would like scanning assitance, please indicate so in the notes field when you make your reservation. 

Scheduling a 3D Printer

The 3D Lab may be scheduled up to 4 Hours per week by University of Memphis students

 

The 3D Lab closes 1 hour before the library.
Appointments must end by that time.
Appointments must be made at least 24 hours in advance.
Lab is available during Summer and Winter Break on limited schedule. 

UPDATE

UPDATE!

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. 

ALREADY AN ADVANCED USER? 

EMAIL cbehles@memphis.edu TO START USING THE NEW SERVICE.
