Do you have a need to 3D print? Thanks to a grant from the GW Hospital Women's Board, the Himmelfarb Library has purchased a Zortrax m200 3D printer and ABS filament in multiple colors. In December the Library will begin a pilot period in which Himmelfarb patrons can submit 3D files for printing. During the pilot period, there is no cost for printing. The printer is available for use by faculty, staff and students in SMHS, GWSPH, SON, GW Hospital and MFA. For more details including policies about the types of items that can be printed, the available filament colors, and the file submission process, please visit the Himmelfarb Library 3D Printing Guide.
