The ThinkLab has 2 Dremel 3D Idea Builders for 3D printing. Students enrolled in classes using the ThinkLab are trained on the use of the printers. Other students (and faculty and staff) are welcome to stop by during open hours to see the printers in operation. Those who want to learn more about 3D printing and design are encouraged to sign up for the Introduction to 3D Design and Printing tutorial offered in the ThinkLab and in the Digital Knowledge Center.
If you have an object that you would like to have printed and attend the University of Mary Washington, please complete this form:
All submitted jobs will be placed in the print queue. Completed prints can be picked up at the Circulation Desk in Simpson Library.
- The ThinkLab cannot guarantee print quality. We will contact you if your initial print fails and work with you to see if the print issues can be resolved.
- Special permission is required for print jobs exceeding 3 hours.
- The 3D printers can be used only for lawful purposes. No one will be permitted to use the ThinkLab printers to create material that is:
- Prohibited by local, state, or federal law, or by university policy.
- Unsafe, harmful, dangerous or that poses an immediate threat to the well-being of others.
- In violation of another’s intellectual property rights.
- The default print color is white. Printing in a color other than white depends upon the availability of filament, the size of the print job, and the current demand for printers.
