Q. Does the Library have a 3D printer?

Answer

The Steven E. Rogers Media Center in the Paul Meek Library has the MakerBot Replicator Fifth Generation 3D Printer. The 3D printer is available for use by all University of Tennessee at Martin students, faculty, and staff.  Community members will also be eligible to use the library’s 3D printer (must have a community borrower’s card). 

All equipment use must be scheduled, there is no ‘drop in’ use of equipment. For student and faculty class, research and personal access a minimum of ‘3 working days’ notice is required.
 

Small projects may take several hours, complex jobs may take a few days.  the cost to print will be $.15 per gram of filament used in the printing process.  The payment will be due before printing takes place. 

If you would like to meet with a library Media staff member for additional information about 3D printing or if you have questions please email Pat Sanders, Media Center Manager at psander9@utm.edu, 731-881-7069 or 731-881-7063.
