3D Prints Are Limited To 80g Per Print. Prints Will Be Scheduled Monday Through Friday, With 1 Print Per Day.
Re3D Printing is available for students, faculty, and staff of the State University of New York at Fredonia, with priority given to student use.
Prints will be printed with supports when necessary. This adds extra material underneath suspended areas of the print job which increases stability while printing. They can easily be removed by hand or with an X-Acto knife.
Users are responsible for their designs and the successes of their prints. If specific instructions are not given, the requestor will be contacted by Re3D Printing staff to confirm the request. The requested print file cannot be placed in the queue for 3D printing until the requestor has communicated to Re3D Printing staff that the model file is correct. It is recommended that students use MakerBot Print, a software designed to format files for use with our printer, to check the size and details of their print request model. Please see the software tab for more information.
Only designated library staff will have hands-on access to the 3D printer.
Items printed through Re3D Printing and not picked up within 30 days after being printed become the property of Reed Library. Items must be picked up by the individual who requested them.

You will need to submit your updated .stl file, .obj file, or .print file through our 3D Printing Request Form. A .print file is preferred, as this allows you to format the print specifically as you want before submitting it to us. For more information see the software tab.
Designated library staff will look over the file to see if there are any obvious problems that need to be addressed. Please refer to our Helpful Hints Before You Print section, on the right of this screen, to make sure your design is printer-friendly before you submit your file.
You will receive an email when your 3D Printing Request is scheduled, a second email when the job is printing, and a third email when your request is completed. Once you've received the third email, you can pick it up from Reed Library at your convenience near the Service Point across from the entrance of Reed Library. 3D Prints will be available in "Re3D To Go" bags on a small table to the left of the "Reed To Go" library materials pickup area. No FredCard is needed for pickup, just look for the bag with your name on it and you're all set!
3D printing is the process of creating a physical object from a digital model. This is typically done through the use of a 3D printer which lays down many thin layers of material.
3D printing is useful to anyone and can be used to create low-volume custom prototypes. For example, models for class projects, testing design ideas, creating visual aids, creating components to incorporate into larger-scale models. These ideas can be applied to many fields of study, from the sciences to the arts. The possibilities are endless, limited only to the size of the printer and your imagination.
Specifically, the library's 3D printer may not be used to create materials that are:
