Additive manufacturing, or 3D printing, is the process where a three-dimensional object is created through successive layering of material by process of computer control.
The basic steps for creating a 3D-printed object at the UTA FabLab are:
- Design or download a three-dimensional object.
- Create an .STL file for the object.
- Check the .STL file for errors.
- Come to the FabLab at the Central Library to print your object. Staff will be there to assist you with sending your job to the printer.
- Verify the amount you will be charged (via MavMoney) for your print job with FabLab staff.
- At time of purchase, a receipt and expected completion/pick-up date will be issued.
If you need help with any of these steps, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or come in to the FabLab
