The Cube Hours

Monday - Thursday

9:00 AM - 5:00 PM


9:00 AM - 2:00 PM

The Cube is open to all students, faculty, and staff on campus to test the bounds of additive manufacturing. The Cube is operated by the College of Engineering and housed in H.M. Comer Hall. Its staff can assist in printing models designed for personal projects, classes, competition teams, research, clubs, or senior design. Using 3D CAD software like SolidWorks, Autodesk Inventor, or Autodesk Fusion 360, you can export a .STL file which we can help you turn into a physical model on one of our printers.

Submitted parts should not violate copyright laws, and must be designed by the student. This extends to public file hosting sites; models from Thingiverse or the Prusa Knowledgebase will not be printed. Weapons or other offensive materials are likewise not allowed.
