What is 3D Printing?

3D Printing is process of creating physical three dimensional objects from digital files or models. Additive processing is used, in which successive layers of filament is laid down in thin layers until the entire model is complete.


Bierce Library provides this service free for all Academic Prints up to 1 kilogram of filament, after which filament must be supplied.
Personal Prints are available to all students for up to 10 printing hours, after which additional prints can be purchased at $2.50 per print plus 2 cents per gram of filament.
