Using our 3D Printers
Looking for a way to take your ideas from just a thought to reality? The Innovation & Collaboration Studio has the tools to bring your design ideas to life, with a selection of 3D printers from MakerGear and Lulzbot.
To start prints, bring your files (in .stl format) to the lab any time from 9am to 5pm, Monday through Friday. Our staff will be happy to help. The ICS currently has several different models of FDM printers to create custom parts designed specifically for your project.

3D Printing Materials
Our FDM printers use HATCHBOX and Matterhackers filaments. You will need to use either 1.75 mm filament or 2.85 mm filament (PLA). Before you get started on your project, make sure your personal filament is approved.
MakerGear M2 is a single extruder printer with a printing envelope of 8in x 10in x 8in.
