Use the 3D printers

VCU Libraries is excited to announce the availability of three 3D printers in the Innovative Media department on the lower level of Cabell Library. Explore the guidelines and other materials to help you use them effectively.


Virginia Commonwealth Libraries' Innovative Media department currently maintains three 3D printers:

These printers can be found in The Workshop in James Branch Cabell Library, in room 078 of the lower level.  Supporting 3D design and conversion software is installed on several workstations in The Workshop.  These printers are made available to encourage a spirit of exploration and experimentation by the VCU community with this newly-accessible form of design and production.  We hope that you will share your experience (and models) as part of the growing community of 3D printer practitioners, makers, and others interested in the technology.
