The Resource Lab has added a Cubex 3D printer to its stable of cutting edge machinery over the summer. What is 3D printing you say? Well, it’s just that—the ability to print an object in three dimensions. This means you can create objects using 3D modeling software, such as Google Sketchup (free) and print them out in various colors of PLA starch-based plastic.
Some examples of prints we’ve created over the summer include: spheres, pyramids, containers, a boomerang and a replica of a TARDIS! You could download and modify any of thousands of open-source 3D models from sites like Thingiverse.
If we’ve piqued your interest (we have), and you’ve got a compelling idea for a 3D printing project, contact Justin Counts, the Media Services Consultant about what is possible. For more details about our 3D printer visit the Resouce Lab page on the Information Technology site at LC.
Our color Ink-jet printers are the best for quality printing. You can print digital photos that look like, nay, they ARE real photos! Sizes vary from 4”x6” up to 100’x42” on our large format printer of awesome.
The good old black and white. When the library is busy or you need to print on special paper, this is your printer.
Phaser, like Laser-jet, printing is great when you need a color reference, or just want to add some pizzaz to your report. It will print 11”x17” as well.
