3D Printing at UMD Libraries

General Information

Printers for 3D printing in the libraries are currently available in McKeldin's Terrapin Learning Commons and the STEM Library.

Students, staff, and faculty are welcome to submit their print request to the STEM Library. Users will receive email updates about the status of their prints, including when their item is ready for pick up. McKedlin library MakerSpace offers patrons the opportunity to learn how to 3D print models on their own.  

3D printing in the libraries is made possible with the help of the Library Technology fee.
