Through a generous loan by the non-profit organization New Blankets, Morris Library now has a Makerbot Replicator 2 3D Printer. This printer allows the user to create physical objects from digital models. All members of the university community and the public are encouraged to make use of this exciting technology.

3D printing is sometimes referred to as additive manufacturing or rapid prototyping. It is the process of creating a three dimensional physical object from a digital model. The 3D printer builds the object vertically by putting down layer upon layer of material. The Makerbot Replicator 2 printer uses a plastic filament called PLA.

3D Printing can turn your ideas into actual objects.
