3D Printing at the SMS: Request a Print

Attention: 3D printing service has resumed

The Student Multimedia Studio is open by appointment only again this semester. As with fall semester, we are continuing to offer our 3D printing service. The only difference is that we do not offer in-person consultations and have established contactless pickup for finished prints. Once a request is completed the student will be notified via email from our kentstatesms@gmail.com account with instructions on pickup. Thank you in advance for your patience as we navigate through new procedures and make necessary adjustments this semester.

Instructions

How to order a 3D print:

  1. Fill out request form (below).
  2. Upload model file (STL or OBJ) to the SMS 3D Print Requests Google Drive folder.
  3. Check your inbox and/or junk mail folder for email from our kentstatesms@gmail.com account (with questions or to let you know that your model is finished.)
  4. Pick up your print!

Visit the How to Print page for full instructions.

Note:

  • Please only submit ONE print request at a time. Additional requests should not be submitted until the previous request is finished.

  • Course-related print requests receive first priority over personal projects.

  • We require a minimum of a week turnaround on course-related print requests. A request submitted in under a week of a deadline may not be completed in time.
