University Libraries 3D Printing Service

MakerGear M2

Miami University Libraries can now meet your needs when it comes to three dimensional printing. If you can imagine it, we can print it using the MakerBot Replicator printer. We can convert from a wide variety of formats for printing. In a matter of days we can print what you have imagined. Design at TinkerCad online, in Blender, or in your favorite 3D modeling program. Set up an appointment with one of the two library 3D printing specialists for a consultation.

What we can do

  • Print ready-to-go 3D models from a variety of file formats (e.g. .stl, .obj, -- ask us about other acceptable formats)
  • Repair/modify 3D models for printability
  • Access to public computers with AutoDesk products (e.g. AutoCAD, 3dsMax, Maya, Rhino), SketchUp
  • Consultations on 3D modeling and file conversions
  • 3D scanning using a HP Pro S3 scanner
