3D printing … now in two colors!

The McGoogan Library Makerspace has a new 3D printer.  In addition to our original MakerBot 5 single color 3D printer, we recently added a MakerBot Replicator 2X Experimental 3D Printer.  The 2X is a dual-extrusion 3D printer that allows two ABS filament colors to be printed at the same time through precisely aligned dual nozzles.  Print jobs are now being accepted for the 2X 3D Printer via the 2-Color 3D Request Form. The 2X printer has the following color choices available: red, orange, yellow green, blue, purple, white, gray, black and natural.  Please be aware that the 2X can handle most 3D objects that are ready for printing whether they are one color or two color, however for a 3D print job to be printed in two colors it must be pre-designed to print with two colors.   As always the submitted 3D print jobs are limited to academic, clinical and research objects only.
