3D Printing

3D printing is available to members of the Rutgers community

Welcome to 3D printing at the Fordham FabLab on the ground level of the Douglass Library.  Just follow signs to the Fordham Commons to find the 3D printers.

We have two MakerBot Replicator 2 printers.

Visit the MakerBot website for more information about MakerBot, Replicator 2, and Makerware

Please contact Stacey Carton at the Media Center or at 848 932 5042 for an appointment.  Or email sacarton@rutgers.edu

http://www.makerbot.com/

 

Getting started

Create a file for 3D printing using our software or one of your own. (.stl file)

Be sure to visit the Makerbot Replicator 2 page to be aware of size and other limitations

Make an appointment with Stacey at the Media Center (848) 932 5042 or ask for details at the Fordham Commons help desk.  We will provide you with the cost for printing your project and set up a printing appointment.  

Printing costs are $.25/gram, rounded up to the nearest dollar.  PLEASE BRING EXACT CHANGE- CASH ONLY.   (RIAS available- ask for details)

We will also convert your project to a .x3g file which is compatible with our printers.

You will have a chance to preview your project before printing begins.
