Use this form to submit a digital model to be printed by library staff on FSU Libraries two LulzBot TAZ 6 3D printers.  Any model submitted for printing should fit the following guidelines:   

  1. Submit files in .stl format - then zip the file before uploading.
  2. Name files with the convention: FSUID_Month_Day_Year.stl (example: jdo13e_9_4_2015.stl)
  3. Size models to fit within the maximun print size of 9.9 L x 7.8 W x 5.9 H in. (251 L x 198 W x 149 H mm).
  4. Check model for errors using a 3D modeling software like NetFabb (https://www.autodesk.com/products/netfabb).

Once your project has been received, you will be contacted with either an acknowledgement that your job has been added to the print queue or a note that revisions are needed. When your job has finished printing, you will be contacted again and can pick your project at Dirac Library's front desk.  Please bring your FSU ID.  Models will only be given to the original requester.
