The 3D printer at McNairy Library and Learning Forum is a Tinkerine Ditto Pro.  It uses Polylactic Acid (PLA) Filament, a biodegradable plastic derived from renewable resources (e.g. corn starch)

Millersville students, staff and faculty can find, create and 3D print objects with assistance from the students in the Digital Learning Studio in McNairy Library (room 112).  See our Terms of Service for more details.

You can start by exploring downloadable 3D models at sites like Thingiverse or YouMagine.  Or perhaps, you'd like to create something on your own.  Take a look at Tinkercad.  It is very easy to use to create 3D printable objects. Please bring your files on a thumb drive.  .STL file type is preferred.

3D Printing and Higher Education

What can you do with a 3D printer in a college class?  That's a good question.  I've started a list here - http://mylearningproject.tumblr.com/post/115710238465/disciplinary-examples-of-3d-printing and I am eager to add to it.  Please contact me to discuss your ideas.
