Previous Tips of the Week Print Page

Tip of the Week 1

Anyone can make use of the library's 3D printer.  Students, Faculty, Staff, and community members are all welcome to print something with our 3D printer.


    Tip of the Week 2

    You don't have to know how to design a 3D model to use the 3D printer.  There are millions of designs online that you can use.  Sites like Thingiverse, NASA, the National Institutes of Health, and the Smithsonian have lots of great choices.


      Tip of the Week 3

      Are you interested in learning how to create your own 3D models, but don't know where to start?  Tinkercad is a free 3D modeling program that offers lots of beginning tutorials.  You can use the program right in your browser and don't have to download any software.


        Tip of the Week

        Do you have a great idea for a holiday ornament?  The White House is sponsoring a 3D printed ornament challenge through Instructables.  Some of the winning designs will be 3D printed and displayed at the White House and at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History.  For more information, please see the notice from the Office of Science and Technology Policy.


          Tip of the Week 5

          If you want to check your 3D model to see if it is good to print, use Netfabb.  There is a free version of Netfabb that allows you to cut models into parts, analyze your model, and make some repairs automatically.
