3D Printing Service Has Returned

The Maker Commons 3D Printing service is back online! We have refreshed and improved the Maker Commons 3D printing service with several updates and changes. Most notably, we are now using Dremel 3D45 3D printers and 3DPrinterOS Cloud slicing software to run them. Please read the FAQ to review all of the changes and updates to the service.
