Sterne Library 3D Printing

New in Fall 2021, Sterne Library 3D printing is a new UAB Libraries technology space that includes two Dremel 3D45 printers, an Ultimaker S3 3D printer, and a workstation with slicing software for preparing model files to be 3D printed. Sterne Library 3D printing is located in Sterne Library Room 146.

All 3D printing activities in UAB Libraries must be conducted in accordance with the UAB Libraries 3D Printing guidelines. Members of the UAB community who are interested in this exciting technology are welcome to visit Sterne Library 3D Printing during posted hours to learn about 3D printing and creating 3D digital models. For more information on 3D printing or to view our 3D modeling tutorials please visit the 3D Printing research guide.
