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 email@example.com.
There are 11 Multi-Media Carts available to faculty and students 24/7. Three carts use 40" NEC LCD displays, two are 60" LCD displays, and 6 are 55" displays using OLED technology. There are VGA and DVI cables and adapters for displays with those inputs, and HDMI cables and adapters for the OLED displays, to connect your laptop and project your animations, tutorial, drawings, maps, etc. Remote controls are attached to the carts so all you have to do is plug in the monitor, turn it on and connect your laptop!
