Do you need a 3D part or object printed, but don’t have access to a 3D printer or don’t want to wait for a 3D printer in the lab to become available? Try the updated MIT 3D Printing Service!

Project Manus, in collaboration with Copytech, runs a service where members of the MIT community can submit 3D print jobs online using the cloud-based printing dashboard 3DPrinterOS. We then 3D print your objects for you and let you know when your job is ready for pickup at Copytech (11-004). The cost for the service is a per-job $4.00 setup charge, $2.50 per hour of print time, and a $0.06 per gram material charge. How long a job takes to print varies.
