Makerbot Replicator

The Makerbot Replicator 2X is a 3D printer that uses ABS plastic to build models up to 9.8"(length) x 6.3"(width) x 5.9"(height) in up to two colors. Similar to the Stratasys printers in material and method of construction it is less expensive to use though not as accurate where specific tolerances are required. The Media Center is offering Makerbot fabrication on a drop-off basis when provided a model that has both the Rhino and .stl versions. Because of the nature of the service, where the length of time per job is just an estimate, the schedule will only show jobs that are running or about to run and can't show when any submitted job will be started or completed. Questions, comments, or concerns can be sent to mediacenter@umich.edu.

Review and Lab Spaces

There are several review and lab spaces that previously employed a paper sign-up system, but now we've moved that system online to facilitate easier reservations for these spaces. Essentially it's the same system, but now you don't have to visit the building just to reserve a space for your class or group. Only faculty and staff can reserve space using this system, students should contact Laura Brown (laurajbr@umich.edu) to reserve a space.
