About 3D Printing

As of Fall 2013, 3D printing at Lake Forest Academy is here and available to the LFA community! The Media Commons has acquired the Makerbot Replicator 2x, a dual-extrusion 3D printer. The printer is currently being managed by Mrs. Kolovitz and Mr. Alvarado, feel free to drop by anytime to see it in action. 3D printing services are available to all LFA students, faculty, and staff free of charge!

Information about 3D printing at LFA can be found in this guide. There, you will find our printing policies and procedures, how to request a print job, and other information such as FAQs, a glossary of terms, and links to free 3D modeling software.

HOS Elective Assignment

For the 2014 Head of School Symposium Elective: Tomorrow's World: The Power of Science and Technology, students were asked to design an original object, print it using the 3D printer and then create a commercial for it using their own original music, CC or public domain work. Here are a couple of student examples. 



If you have any questions about the process or 3D printing in general, check our 3D Printing FAQs page or contact us:
