You don't always have to build things from scratch.
3D printing can sometimes be an experiment...
It's not always "set it and forget it".
You need quality filament and sometimes you need to adjust the conditions for better results.
So, take a crack at it. You may get hooked.
We have "Simplify 3D" available to use.
It significantly improves your results and simplifies the process.
If you have taken our "Introduction to 3D printing" class and
you are now ready to start our own prints, here is a basic guide you can use as a refresher:

If you can't wait for the next available
"Intro to 3D printing" class,
you can search the large Thingiverse database for something you would like to print.
We will determine the weight of the final print and charge between 25 and 50 cents a gram (based on membership status).
There is also a $5 set-up fee, if you are not a member, or a punch on your card.
If you would like to try to make your own design, Tinkercad is an easy, free, browser-based program you can use to start designing, no downloads necessary.
Below are some basic online tutorials to start playing around.
