We offer a wide variety of 3D printers and materials to help you take your virtual models to reality.
3D Printers at the Makerspace
We have over 30 FFF (Fused Filament Fabracation) printers from Ultimaker, including the Ultimaker 3, 3 Extended, S3, S5 and S5 Pro. These reliable prosumer printers are efficient and economical while producing high-quality parts.
We have 8 Form 2 and 2 Form 3 printers and offer most of the standard and engineering resins for these SLA printers that excel in print small and intricate parts in high resolution.
Markforged, Stratasys & Dolomite
We have FFF 3D printers from Markforged, Stratasys & Dolomite that excel in certain areas, for example, the Dolomite is designed for microfluidics and the Markforged prints in carbon fiber reinforced nylon. Ask our staff about the advantages!

Steps for Access and Use
Step #1: Permits and Fee
Ensure you have:
[-] A valid M-Pass. You must show our staff your physical M-Pass and wiscard.
Note: College of Engineering faculty and staff are not required to pay the materials fee though they still must have a CoE permit.
Step #2: Talk to student staff
Find a Makerspace student staff member (they’re wearing a black apron). They can typically be found by the 3D printer area or go to the check-out window and ring the bell if needed. They will help you prepare your file for printing and provide a cost.
Step #3: Pay for your print at the check-out window
Pay at the check-out window before being loaded to the printer by our staff. Methods of payment are here.
Step #4: Load your print with student staff

To determine the price of a 3D Print, you can use our Cost Calculator, which calculates the price based on material consumption. You will need to know the number of grams for Ultimaker prints, the number of mL for Formlabs prints, the number of cubic centimeters for the Markforged, and cubic inches for the Stratasys.
