3D Printing


The 3D printers must be reserved before use via the Library’s booking system.

We require at least 24 hours notice to approve reservations, not including weekends. You can book a printer for a maximum of 10 hours at a time.

Innovation Commons Peer Tutors will be available in Innovation Commons Room B on the main floor of Redpath Library during select hours to answer questions and assist in the 3D printing process.
