Resource Lab Printing
We print on a variety of media - cardstock, photo quality paper, just plain paper, or even sticker paper. We also offer 3D printing in a variety of colors. For more information about what we have available, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are interested in printing with the Resource Lab, please familiarize yourself with our Printing Policy, especially if you are a staff or faculty member of LC.
The Resource Lab has added a Makerbot 3D printer to its stable of cutting edge machinery. 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 the IT Service Desk about what is possible.
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.
Phaser printing, 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 8.5”x11”, 8.5”x14”, or 11”x17”.
The good old black and white. When the library is busy or you need to print on special paper, this is your printer.
