3D printing is an exciting technology that lets you print 3D designs into tangible objects. Although we prioritize academic bookings, you can use our 3D printers to support both your academic and personal projects.
To 3D print at the Sandbox, we ask you to complete our certification training. This training is free and covers the fundamentals of how to use our printers safely and effectively.
Complete our online training module (including a short quiz).
Complete in-person training (details available in the online training module).
Book the printer using our online form (please note: bookings will only be accepted if a person has completed steps 1 and 2).
Wait to hear back from a Sandbox lead who will help you arrange your 3D booking.
Once you have completed the certification training you are free to arrange an appointment to print at the Sandbox by submitting the form linked to below.
Standard 3D printing bookings are a maximum of three hours, per day. Sandbox users are expected to leave the Sandbox by the end of their booking time.
