3D Printing

Miami University Libraries can now meet your needs when it comes to three dimensional printing. If you can imagine it, we can create it using the MakerBot Replicator 3D 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 in Google Sketchup, Blender or your favorite 3D modeling program. Set up an appointment with one of the two library 3D printing specialists for a consultation.

How much is this service?

The pricing is $.20 per gram of the finished print. Many factors go into the final weight of the end product: how much fill is necessary, how big the project is (volume), and whether the project requires external supports while being printed. 

How do I get something printed?

To print through this service you must go through a consulting session in King Library (513) 529-1776 or John Williams at the Business, Engineering, Science and Technology (BEST) Library (513) 529-6886. During the consultation we will discuss the project, the limitations of what we can do and the possibility of splitting the project in to pieces if it is too large or will take to long to print. We will try to give the best print possible in the shortest amount of time. If you have any questions about the process or 3D printing in general, please call or stop by the CIM or Best Library.
