Located in the Digital Media Commons (DMC) on Snell Library's second level, the 3D Printing Studio offers the resources of a full suite of 3D fabrication and modeling technologies to members of the Northeastern community: students (undergraduate and graduate), faculty, and staff.
Get started with your 3D project:
Bring a flash drive with an .STL or .VRML file to the studio during Consultation Hours (listed below), and you'll be able to get started with your own 3D project. Almost any geometry from a computer model in three dimensions can be printed, whether it was designed in AutoCAD, Maya, Rhino, ZBrush, Google Sketchup, MatLab, or another modeling program.
Never used modeling software but have a great idea for a 3D project? Visit the Digital Media Commons to learn more about how to get started with the best program for your model, and connect with other campus resources. We also have a step-by-step introduction guide here.
