Technology is provided through RamTech, CSU’s one-stop-shop for all computing, software, and electronic needs at educational prices. Additionally, materials can be purchased online or at RamTech as well.

A LulzBot Mini 3D printer can be found in the Morgan Library, while various others can be found in the Engineering Building Idea-2-Product lab. Printing in the library is free as long as users provide their own materials.

Printing in the Idea-2-Product lab requires an additional service fee. Anyone can buy the LulzBot 3D printers at RamTech at educational pricing.

Users can check availability and make reservations for the 3D printers in the Idea-2-Product lab online.

Anything from small mechanical parts to full-scale scanned objects can be created using 3D printing technology. Turn your idea into a product using the 3D printers around campus.
