3D Printing Service

The library offers a 3D printing service to both staff and students of NUI Galway. Details on how to access the service are available here -> 3D Printing Service

We have three 3D printers in use:
Ultimaker 2 - Standard ultimaker 3D printer. Use 2.85 mm filament.
Ultimaker 2 Ex
RepRapPro Mendel 3

We only offer PLA (Polylactic acid) based filament as they are biodegradable and odourless. Our colours include White, Black, Transparent, Silver and Orange. Generally we use whatever colour is in the printer at the time but you can request a specific coulour but it's not guaranteed that we can deliver your print in the colour.
