The Calder Library now offers 3D printing for all students, faculty, staff and other affiliated patrons.


Users can submit a job request at the Circulation desk or by contacting Library staff via email with ‘3D Printing’ in the subject line. Requestors are welcome to view the printer in action—although this 3D printing is a slow process that can take hours!

3D printer users are encouraged to take advantage of shared files located on the NIH 3D Print Exchange. The NIH 3D Print Exchange provides models in formats that are readily compatible with 3D printers, and offers a unique set of tools to create and share 3D-printable models related to biomedical science. Find designs by clicking the Discover button. You can also share original print files on the Exchange by clicking the Share button.
