3D Printing and Scanning

3D Printing

The DeLaMare Library Makerspace offers access to three different 3D printers. They include a Sintratec, a LulzBot Taz 5, and Stratasys uPrint SE Plus. Build size, layer thickness, filament materials available and their costs, and file formats accepted all vary per machine. Please visit or contact the makerspace directly at 775-682-7385 for more information.

3D Scanning

The Makerspace provides access to both an Artec Spider and Artec Leo 3D scanner.

  • The Artec Leo is great for capturing larger items and contains a display on the scanner, negating the need to be tethered to a computer. It provides up to 0.5mm resolution and 0.1mm 3D point accuracy. It also provides our finest level of textural resolution.

  • The Artec Spider is perfect for capturing small objects with complex geometry, sharp edges and thin ribs, such as molding parts, PCBs, or fossils. It provides up to 0.1mm resolution and 0.05mm 3D point accuracy.
