3D Printing is a process for making a physical object from a three-dimensional digital model, typically by laying down many successive thin layers of a material.
The MakerSpace on the second floor of Trexler Library adjacent to the Trexler Technology Center houses the university's first 3D printer, a Makerbot Replicator 2.
Some specifications on the printer:
Print bed dimensions: 11.2 in x 6.0 in x 6.1 in
Type of material: PLA (polylactic acid) which is a biodegradable material derived from starch.
File types accepted: .stl, .thing. obj
