The NDSU Libraries provide 3D printing as a drop-off service at the Main Library for NDSU students, staff, and faculty. 3D printing is an additive manufacturing process in which a three-dimensional object is built by laying down successive layers of thin material.
If this is your first time 3D printing with NDSU Libraries, we highly recommend coming to the 3D printing desk in the Main Library during open hours. If you have any questions, please email us at email@example.com.
Current Semester Hours. Times are subject to change.
Monday-Thursday 10:00AM- 6:00 PM
Location: Main Library 121
The cost to 3D print is $0.25 per gram, with a minimum of $5 per job submitted. An estimate will be calculated prior to starting print, but may not reflect the final charge. Payment will be made at Circulation Desk.
We reserve the right to deny any print job.
Like all campus labs, we follow safety protocols. We want to be sure that you and our other guests work in a safe environment. All NDSU campus wide policies are enforced in the lab as well as few that are unique to the space. Creating a culture of safety in our digital fabriaction lab is every community member's responsibility.
Eligible Users: All Faculty, Staff, and currently enrolled students may use the Digital Fabrication Lab.
The list provided is a general overview of safety requirements. You may be asked to follow rules not listed dependent on project or task. We ask that if you are unsure of how to use a machine, tool, or complete a task, please ask the supervisor on duty. We are here to help and we may have a better solution or campus resource. Understand you may be told a project or procedure may be deemed unsafe for the space or for other occupants, and turned away. We reserve the right to deny access or use of resources.
We do not allow reproduction, duplication, or matters of infringement of existing Copyright, Patents, or Trademarks. This includes the NDSU Bison Athletics logo and the likes of others.
