How you can use it

You must be certified to use our 3D printers. 

Register for a certification

After you're certified, you can use a 3D printer to:

  • Create physical objects from digital files
  • Design 3D models and prototypes using Fused Deposition Modeling or Resin-Inverted SLA 3D printers
  • Print open-source 3D models from ThingiverseYeggi, or Instructables
  • Create advanced 3D models using SolidWorks and AutoCAD (free downloads for UA faculty, staff, and students) or Fusion360

Fees

Our materials for 3D printing cost fees to use. Learn more about our fees and how to pay them.
