Getting Started

We are testing out a new system for remote 3D printing to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission.

We have default settings that we use for the vast majority of our prints (0.2mm layer height, 25% infill). You can find more information and why it matters here.

If this is for a class, it is YOUR responsibility to bring it to us in a timely manner. Because we are operating a queue, we will need a few days to print out your item.

We will send you an email once your print is done, so make sure to check it often.

Email jihoo.kim@vanderbilt.edu with any questions.

Before you submit a print for us, please make sure of the following:

  • Your file is in the STL format.
  • The object being printed is not something that could easily be made using other materials.
    • Objects like large boxes or sheets can easily be made with wood or cardboard.
  • Your print will be made according to the default settings UNLESS you specify otherwise. Special settings without an explanation their necessity will not be implemented.
  • Your print fits within the maximum dimensions of the Ultimaker 3 (215mm x 215mm x 300mm).
