3D Printing at Nesbitt Library

3D printing at Wilkes-BarreThe Nesbitt Library has been offering 3D printing services to the campus community since fall 2015. We currently have several different types of 3D printers and a variety of PLA plastic colors from which to choose. For more information about 3D printing, please see the Penn State Libraries subject guide on 3D Printing.

To print a design you must be a student, faculty, or staff member of Penn State Wilkes-Barre. Email the file or link to a file page (for example, at Thingiverse) to us at ul-wilkes-barre@lists.psu.edu. Please indicate a preferred color and we will try to accommodate your request.
