Getting Started with 3-D Printing

Gelman is proud to offer 3-D printing to all GW students, faculty, and staff! 3-D printing (also called additive manufacturing) is a process of making three dimensional solid objects from a digital file. The object is created by laying down successive layers of material until the entire object is created.
