3D printing returns September 4

Reed Library's 3D printing service is back! The library will begin receiving requests on September 4th, 2018.

The service will once again be free to all Fredonia students, faculty, and staff. However, in order to ensure the sustainability of the service, policy changes have been made. These include a limit to print sizes and the number of prints the library will produce per day.

More information on this can be found on the Library's 3D printing guide.
