SAC Opens 3D Print Studio in Student Mega Lab
November 15, 2019
San Antonio College has unveiled a new 3D Print Studio located in the Student Mega Lab at the Moody Learning Center, room 502. The Print Studio offers a full suite of 3D fabrication to all members of the SAC community. Whether it’s for classwork, research or a personal project, the Student Mega Lab staff will help create a 3D model for a nominal fee.
3D printing is an excellent tool for making prototypes of project concepts. The studio includes two Makerbot Replicator+ Printers and one Prusa MKS 3D Printer. The use of a 3D printer is first come, first served. Once an in-person request is submitted, the Student Mega Lab staff will provide a cost estimate to print the desired item. Payment must be made through “Alamo Market Place Mall” before the project is printed. The file will be processed and printed by the Student Mega Lab staff and the requestor will be notified via email for pickup.
While 3D printers already exist at SAC, they are used primarily by the department’s faculty and students. The 3D Open Print Studio is available to the entire college community to foster the creativity of employees as well as students.
“The Student Mega Lab is an open lab for all students at San Antonio College,” Yvonne Galindo said. “With this new 3D Print Studio, we are really excited about expanding our suite of services and also providing a place for both our employees and students to learn, innovate and create.”
