NIH 3D Print Exchange Repository

The NIH announced it will create and maintain a 3D Print Exchange repository, a public website that enables users to share, download, and edit 3D print files related to health and science. In announcing this service, NIH Director Francis S. Collins, M.D., Ph.D., said:

“We hope that the 3D Print Exchange will expand interest and participation in this new and exciting field among scientists, educators, and students.”

The NIH “uses 3D printing, or the creation of a physical object from a digital model, to study viruses, repair and enhance lab apparatus, and help plan medical procedures. The 3D Print Exchange makes these types of files freely available, along with video tutorials for new users and a discussion forum to promote collaboration. The site also features tools that convert scientific and clinical data into ready-to-print 3D files.”
