How To: 3D Printing in B5

A guide on using the UP Mini 3D Printer and bringing a 3D model into the UP Studio software in the B5 lab of the Library Media Labs.

Creating the 3D Model


There are a number of programs and applications for creating 3D models, objects and figures. Maya, Blender, and ZBrush are all available programs in the Media Labs.


The Media Labs also have a 3D scanner that you can use to bring a real object into the 3-Dimensional plane. After scanning, you can manipulate the 3D object within a software, and then print it.
