3D Printing in the Media Center

about 1 year ago

By Julie Fountain

Welcome to 3D Printing!

You can design and create 3D items with our 3D printers!

3D Printing Equipment

BSMS has three 3D printers in our maker-space:

 - Two NewMatter Mod-t printers

 - One LulzBot Mini printer

Unfortunately, NewMatter went out of business in the spring of 2018, but we can still use the Mod-t printers by preparing the design files with a free online app called AstroPrint.  See the video below, titled "New Matter Store Closure".

The LulzBot Mini 3D Printer

The Lulzbot Mini is a higher quality 3D printer but more complicated to operate.  Keep checking our site here for directions to come in the near future!
