The Rutgers University Libraries welcome students, faculty, and staff to make use of our new 3D printers, located in the Fordham Commons area of the Mabel Smith Douglass Library. Library users may design projects using the software available on the computers in the Commons, as well as print files created with compatible software.

The two 3D printers was obtained by the Douglass Library through a New Jersey Library Makerspaces grant, made by the New Jersey State Library and LibraryLinkNJ. The Douglass Library is one of only 15 public, school, and academic libraries across New Jersey to receive this grant.

For information on how to use one of the 3D printers, such as pricing and compatibility of formats, go to:

The library is also working to acquire a 3D scanner, which should be available shortly.
