TSAS currently has three 3D printers: an Ender 3 Pro, an Elegoo Saturn and a Prusa i3 clone, the Anet A8. Technical information on our Ender 3 and Elegoo Saturn is coming soon, and info on the Anet A8 is here. We started printing with a PrintrBot Play, since retired.

Want Something Printed?

  1. Find some 3D Model Sources, or make one. Note that a print cannot take longer than a school day—this means you probably cannot print a mask or large statue.
  2. Email it to Stallings
  3. Objects created by another artist not used for class cost $1.00 per print if printed on the Ender or Anet, $2.00 per print if printed on the Saturn
  4. There is no charge to print original objects (those created by you) or those used for a class
  5. Be sure to share your designs and creations in the Gallery!

Printing Rules

  • You may not print objects subject to trademark or copyright law
  • No weapons, including blades or firearms (including non-working replicas) may be printed
  • No object that would violate the student code of conduct may be printed
