20181126_101931Himmelfarb Library is launching a 3D printing service!

Starting today, faculty, staff, and students of the School of Medicine and Health Sciences, Milken Institute School of Public Health, School of Nursing, MFA, and GW Hospital can submit print jobs through our 3D Print Job Submission form.

3D printing will be free for the next three months while we conduct our pilot project; afterwards we will be charging a fee based on the weight of the material used in order to recover costs. While we will prioritize print jobs for academic or curricular purposes, we welcome a wide variety of print requests. For a full list of our policies including what we will and won't print, see our "3D Printing at Himmelfarb" guide.

Want to get started with 3D printing, but aren't sure what to start with? Check out the NIH 3D Print Exchange for some inspiration and a great source of model files to download and print.

We look forward to seeing what you come up with!


Nutrition Pepper Mushroom Background BackgroundsEating a healthy diet should be simple but nutrition news can make your head spin. Let’s clear up the confusion and separate the facts from the hype. Let’s figure out how you put a healthy and delicious meal on the table tonight.
Kate Sherwood, executive chef at the Center for Science in the Public Interest, will combine what nutritionists know about healthy with what chefs know about delicious. Because eating healthy food that doesn't taste great is impossible to sustain, and let's be honest: life's too short not to enjoy great food.
So healthy and delicious, practical and easy. Join Kate for a conversation and a taste of healthy and delicious. Food samples provided! (Space is limited; please register.)
