The Makerbot Z18 is located in the 3D Printing Room with the rest of the specialty printers. Please note that although this wiki provides information on how to use these tools, the Makerbot Z18 and the rest of the specialty printers require training before use.


  • These printers can print parts with a maximum volumetric capacity of 12"x12"x18" (lxwxh).
  • Our fleet currently uses 1.75mm PLA (polylactic acid) filament to print.
  • It is not recommended to print solid cubes, rectangular blocks, or simple cylinders as these machines are not meant to replace all other forms of manufacturing.
