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. To submit your 3D design to be printed, scroll to the bottom of this page and fill out the 3D print request form.
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 recommended. If the model is used as a display, an infill of 20% should work just fine. Please see the picture below that demonstrates various infill percentages.
