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 Sign-In Sheet

The machine shop has two LulzBot TAZ 6 3D printers that students can use. The shop's filament is free to use. We encourage students to buy their own filament for non-academic projects. 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.
Sign up using the sign-up sheet.
