Starting in Spring Semester 2013, Odum Library is proud to announce the availability of 3D printing services for students, staff, faculty, and the VSU community. The services will be provided by a Makerbot Replicator with a Dual Extrusion printing head that will be located in Media Services.
Because 3D printing is a technology that requires some basic background knowledge to operate successfully, we will be offering one-hour workshops on the basics of 3D printer operation. Attendance at one of these workshops is mandatory before an individual can use the 3D printer. These sessions will cover basic use and operation of the machine, tips for successful printing, and policies governing the use of the printer. There will be four workshops offered in Spring Semester 2013 with plans to offer more in subsequent semesters. The dates, times, and locations for this semester’s workshops are:
January 21, 2014 – 5:00PM-6:00 PM Odum Library 3270
February 18, 2014 – 5:00PM-6:00 PM Odum Library 3270
March 25, 2014 – 5:00PM-6:00 PM Odum Library 3270
April 22, 2014 – 5:00PM-6:00 PM Odum Library 3270
If you wish to attend one of these sessions, please RSVP by email to Michael Holt no later than 2 days before the workshop you wish to attend. There is an attendance limit of 40 for each session, so please reserve your seat early if you wish to use the printer this semester.
If you have any further questions about using the 3D printer in Odum Library, please visit the Media Center’s page for 3D printing services, where you’ll find a complete list of polices.
