This is the 3D printing guide, where you’ll find basic information about 3D printing and how to turn your idea into a tangible model. This part of the site doesn't just apply to McMaster 3D Printing; you can apply the info here whether you’re printing in the EPIC Lab, with us, at home, or looking to buy or build your own 3D printer.

Many topics are missing, but we will be continually adding to this guide. As always, feel free to email us at any point if you have questions!
