Making at MIT

In a makersystem, local makerspaces network together to offer specialized capabilities to a larger community.

For Students

We are working hard to make sure MIT students have access to the tools, spaces and information they need to make, create and innovate.


Mobius connects students, faculty and researchers with nearby resources they can use to make, measure and innovate.

3D Printing Service

Do you need a 3D part 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 MIT 3D Printing Service.

MIT 3D Printing Service

Project Manus in collaboration with MIT Copytech run a service where members of the MIT community can submit 3D print jobs online, then we 3D print them for you and let you know when you job is ready for pickup.

People can learn a lot about engineering and making by learning the ins and outs of 3D printing.  However, sometimes you just need a part printed for a project or you’ve 3D printed a thousand times and are not going to learn much from the 1,001st print.

The Basics

Service pricing

The cost for the service is a per-job $4.00 setup charge$2.50 per hour of print time, and a material charge of $0.06 per gram. How long a job takes to print varies, so you may want to review:
