RMC 3D Printing Studio

The 3D Printing Studio houses 10 FDM printers that (after an online orientation and an in-person assessment) are free and open to anyone at the University! Our goal is to make 3D printing easy to use, free of cost, and accessible to all. We offer group trainings, workshops, and events to help Library visitors learn and master 3D printing technology.
