A collection of three 3D printed parts

3D Print Lab

Idaho State University’s 3D Printer Lab has the capability to create physical objects from digital designs using additive manufacturing technology. The lab contains a range of 3D printers, from entry-level models to high-end machines, as well as software and hardware tools for designing and editing 3D models. With a 3D printer lab, users can prototype and produce custom parts, models, and products for a wide range of applications, including engineering, product development, art, and education.

3D Print Materials

3D printer materials come in a wide range of options to suit various applications and requirements. These materials can include thermoplastics like PLA, ABS, and PETG, known for their ease of use, durability, and strength. Additionally, more advanced materials like PET CF, Onyx, and Nylon offer enhanced properties such as reinforced strength, high impact resistance, and flexibility. Each material has unique characteristics, making them suitable for different projects and industries.

3D Print Forms

To streamline the process of requesting 3D prints, online forms have been created for individuals in various fields, including students and professionals from different industries. These forms allow you to provide necessary information to facilitate your 3D printing request. By completing the form accurately, our team can better understand your requirements and ensure a smooth and efficient 3D printing experience.
