  • Jan. 17, 2015

All of UDPL’s printers need specialized file types in order to print.

All designs, whether they are designed or downloaded, need to be STL or OBJ files in order to be printed.

All files, whether they are STLs or OBJs, need to be translated into files specific to each of the printers. Library staff members will automatically translate your file when preparing your file for printing. You do NOT need to do it yourself!
