Clarkson students may sign up for an account and are allotted a printing balance each semester. If you are a Clarkson student, you must use the Printing Page which will use your Clarkson username to track usage. Currently there is a 100 page limit per semester for printing, if you need to print more, there are OIT provided printers in the ERC, CAMP and Snell. If you are printing for a CS related class, or for a CS Labs project, you can request more printing quota from a Print Server Admin (See Print) when you run low by contacting them via email.

3D Printing

COSI has a 3D printer - a MakerBot Replicator 2. The manual can be found here (and deserves love).

To use the 3D printer, have a model prepared in the STL format (Standard lithography). You will be expected to be in COSI for the entire time the print takes.

For the time being, all printed models are remaining COSI property - you can bring them around to show people, but they must come back to COSI.
