Thermoformers – Pre-Pandemic

This is an accordion element with a series of buttons that open and close related content panels.

Steps for Access

Step #1: Permits and Fee

Ensure you have:

[-] A CoE permit (blue, red OR green is sufficient) and have paid your materials fee for this semester. Our student staff are required to swipe your ID every time to verify.


[-] 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 project and provide a cost.

Step #3: Pay for Your Print at the Check-Out Window

All projects must be paid for at the check-out window before being loaded to the thermoformer by our staff. Methods of payment are here.

Step #4: Begin the Project with Student Staff

The student staff will verify that you have paid and then load your project onto the thermoformer.
