3D Printing

The 3D printing services at Harvey Mudd College are located in the Machine Shop (Rapid Development Lab - Galileo B008). There are three different 3D printers available for use, as will be discussed below.

3D Printing Flowchart

LulzBot Taz 6

The machine shop has two LulzBot TAZ 6 3D printers that students can use. The shop's filament is free to use for projects related to E4 and clinic. If you want to use the 3D printers for a personal project, you can either bring your own filament, or pay for the shop's filament through the same system as reimbursing for broken tools (cash, Venmo, or Claremont Cash). The filament costs $1 per cubic inch. When your print is queued up, the interface will tell you how much filament the system will use in grams. The price is 5 cents/g. Talk to the proctor on duty to pay for the filament.

To buy your own filament, please use only PLA filament with 2.75-3 mm diameter. The LulzBot store is here. To use any material other than PLA, talk with the machine shop manager before printing.

Markforged Mark X7

To use the Markforged Mark X7 printer, consult the document below:

Dimension 1200es

To use the Dimension 1200es, you should have reached a point on the 3D Printing Flowchart that brought you to its use. Email Willie Drake [mailto:wdrake@g.hmc.edu] your .stl files (not your SolidWorks .sldprt files!) and he will print them for you.
