Tech Lab

This guide is to demonstrate all of the available resources in Fant Memorial Library's tech lab and how to use them.

Title

3D Printing

Content

3D printing in the Fant Memorial Library Tech Lab is utilized in classroom projects, or co-curricular projects and activities. There are three Monoprice Maker Ultimate 3D printers in the lab and we offer a variety of PLA filament colors.

Infill Density

The infill density used in a 3D printing project represents how much of the model is filled with material. For a stronger print an infill of 50% is reccommended. If the model is used as a display then an infill of 20% should work just fine. Please see the picture below that demonstrates various infill percentages.
