The Student Technology Fee Committee purchased a Prusa MK3S 3D printer for use in the Library. This is an award-winning 3D printer which is able to handle very finely detailed print jobs, large build volumes, and overcome a variety of problems common with most 3D printers.
In addition, the Prusa MK3/S also has some incredible "intelligent" features:
The library has chosen to work exclusively with Polylactic Acid (aka "PLA"). Most other materials are not suitable for the Library space due to the fact that we do not have sufficient ventilation.
The library will always keep the following colors in stock: Red, White, Blue, Black, Yellow, and Purple.
If you would like to discuss anything about the 3D printer, including upgrades, purchasing additional filaments, or purchasing more printers for students, please send an email to Tim Bostelle (firstname.lastname@example.org).
