We are excited to announce that our remote 3D printing service is now available to any campus affiliate, in support of academic work.


All current Berkeley staff, faculty, and students have access to our remote 3D printing service. To log into 3DprinterOS, follow the link found here. When prompted, enter the password corresponding to your college from the table below. (If several colleges apply, choose the college for which you expect to utilize 3D printing the most.) If a dialog box does not appear, then, on the Dashboard page, click on the three dots at the top right and select “Add workgroup printers” to input the password.

This service allows users to manage their model library, slice models for 3D printing, and remotely send prints to our Ultimaker 3D printer fleet. The following limitations apply:

  • Only black and white PLA and breakaway support material are available
  • Only academic work should be submitted
  • Unless approved by a Design Specialist, users’ total print time will be limited to 20 hours/week
  • Currently, users must be able to pick up their finished print(s) in person within 1 week of printing; shipping is coming soon

Finished prints can be picked up at the first-floor patio entrance to Jacobs Hall on the south side during pickup hours (see info in the sidebar). You will receive an email when your print has finished and is ready for pick up.

You can provide feedback on this new system by reaching out to us at npanditi@berkeley.edu.
