3D Printing at Miner Library

What is 3D printing?

3D printing allows you to create physical, three-dimensional objects from digital files.

3D printing, or additive manufacturing, is the process of building physical objects from digital models. Successive layers of material (filament) are laid down in thin layers to create a physical object.

We offer 3D printing services using an Ultimaker 3 hobbyist grade printer. The 3D printing service is available to students, faculty, staff, and researchers.

You must attend one 3D Printing Orientation class before submitting a job for printing.
