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

News: We have Color!

Mcor Iris Full Color Printer

This printer uses biodegradable glue and paper to make its models. All of the waste from printing can be recycled. We will be determining costs as the semester progresses, so please standby. This printer while not available to the general Miami population quite yet, it will be working so stop be and get a preview of what is to come. Cost will be $0.25 per color page and $0.15 per mono color page.
