3D Printer Spotlight

One of our patrons loves role playing adventure games in the style of Dungeons and Dragons. They sent in a design for our 3D printer using white filament to manufacture their own lava monster. After a base layer of brown paint, they added more details, creating a truly diabolical foe for their characters to battle on game night!

Other patrons have printed a very realistic spider as a specimen for their terrarium and token pieces for a customized chess set. Send your designs to We love seeing what everyone is making. Keep showing us your creativity!
