FALL 2020: Updates to Services (Please Read)

We're excited to have everyone back on campus! In response to necessary safety precautions to prevent the spread of COVID-19, we have made some adjustments to our 3D Studio services offered at Rodgers Library.

3D Printing will continue to be available, but as a full service option only.  Please follow normal procedures for submitting your print job request, but note that our team will undertake all other parts of the printing process.

We will not be able to offer access to the Oculus Rift or 3D Vision stations for the 2020-2021 academic year.
