What We Offer
At John and Stella Graves Makerspace, we currently have five 3D printers up and running:
- Prusa i3 MK3S+ (2 units)
- Zortrax M200
- Zortrax M300
- Artillery Sidewinder X1
In addition to the 3D printers, we also make a wide variety of materials in various colors available to patrons for printing their projects, such as PLA, ABS, PET-G and nylon.
Want to get a part 3D printed?
Send your part our way, and one of our staff members will print it the way you want! Once the print is complete, you can pick it up at the STEM Library services desk.
We no longer charge for this service. However, we will be setting a maximum print time of 12 hours per print.
Requests for 3D printing are done on a first-come, first-serve basis. Because of many unpredictable variables, we cannot make guarantees on turnaround time. Please take this into consideration if you have a tight deadline.
