The 3D printing service in the library started with the Type A Machine Series 1 back in 2014 with the help from a C2E2 grant. The service has since grown these past two years with the addition of the Lulzbot Taz 6 and most recently the Lulzbot Taz Pro. We have also added the 1.2mm (Hardened Steele -MoarStruder) for a more rapid prototype and the .25mm (Mini Aerostruder) for the high detail/resolution prints.
Here is a link to some of the most common applications that can be used to design and edit your 3D models.
These applications listed below can help you to work with editing point clouds or create more organic and shapes. They are also very useful for processing and editing photogrammetry or 3D scanned objects.
Here is a list of such photogrammetry software that is available to help you come up with a replica model from a series of digital photographs. Note that not all of the applications are open source.
Slicing software that allows you to convert your model (.stl/.obj file) into g-code or machine language that will define your scale and settings to create a successful print.
There is a huge 3D community of support that is available both on and offline.
Countless YouTube channels and forums that you can subscribe to.
