UOW MakerSpace: Submit your 3D printing request

3D printing

3D print services are available to all UOW students, faculty and staff – all you have to do is submit a request!

We have two Stratasys Mojo and two FlashForge Dreamer 3D printers in the Library and Me3D printers in the MakerSpace, conveniently located on the ground floor of the Library, adjacent to the Print/Copy room.

You can design your own 3D model using the MakerSpace's computers with applications Tinkercad, Fusion360, Autocad, and FreeCAD, or websites like Thingiverse.com.

Submitting your 3D print request

You can submit your request online by filling out the form provided.

  1. Have your 3D model ready.
  2. Save your model as a .stl file.
  3. Check that your design follows our printing guidelines below.

We'll send you an email with information about when your print is scheduled to be completed.

3D printing guidelines

Disclaimer

The Library reserves the right to deny any print request for any reason, and to alter the charges for 3D printing after the pilot phase.

All submissions are subject to approval based on scheduling, availability, and adherence to the printing policy. Print time varies depending on the design and dimensions of the 3D object.

Users may see slight imperfections in their prints. Small bumps, holes, or rough edges on the object may occur with 3D printing. There may be some instances where objects with multiple pieces or moving parts do not precisely fit together.
