3D PRINTING CONTEST!

atsu 3-d printer contest flyer- deadlines due feb 14th


The Library is holding a 3-D printer contest with cash prizes. Create a model and come up with a way it could be used in healthcare education, and a fabulous prize can be yours. Models will be judged on innovation, creativity or originality, impact on learning, and ability to meet their learning objectives.

The top three 3-D models from each campus will be awarded: 1st ($250), 2nd ($150), and 3rd place ($100). Group winners must split the prize among themselves. Each contestant or group must submit a written proposal and an STL file for the library to print by Feb. 14, 2017. Prizes will be awarded May 2, 2017.


STEP ONE : Find or Make an STL file

The 3D Printers require a CAD based STL (STereoLithography) file for printing. STL files can be created using a 3D scanner or downloaded from other sources.

  • Users must bring a suitable STL file to the Library for use with the printer.
    • See the page to the left for assistance finding an open source STL file suitable for printing.

STEP THREE : WaveWash 55


Library Instructions for Model Requests

  1. You must fill out the 3D model printing form with the Library staff experts :
    1. Missouri : Debra Loguda-Summers 
    2. Arizona : Adrienne Brodie
    3. The form will require
      • Your contact information
      • Your School and program affiliation 
      • Information about your desired model - size, type, file
        • The object can be no larger than 5x5x5 cubic inches.
        • Note: There is only one color available for objects; however, the plastic can be painted upon using model paints.
  2. The Library will require an STL file to print your 3D object.
    • You may supply this via USB drive or email. 
    • If you cannot supply an STL file, the Library will help you find one if possible. 
  3. The Library will contact you when your model is complete or if there is a problem.
    • Note: Printing a standard model typically requires between one to two weeks if all required files are of good quality; specific cases may take longer depending on complexity and availability of materials.

Printed Object Requirements & Limitations

Printer Outputs must meet these limits:

  • Research or academic purposes only
