Library users now have the abililty to make three-dimensional objects in plastic using a design that is uploaded from a digital computer file.
Any 3D drafting software may be used to create a design as long as the file can be saved in an .stl, .obj, or .thing, file format.
Patrons wishing to use the 3D printer must have a library card in good standing.
If you’d like to use the library’s 3D printer, bring your print file in a .stl, .obj, or .thing format with a completed “3D Printing Request Form”. Make sure to include all required signatures and bring the form to the Circulation desk during open hours. Staff will verify the form for accuracy and add the request to the printing queue.
Cost: 3D printing at the Library is $1.00/hour of printing with a minimum of $2.00.
Prints will be left as-is upon completion; finishing work (such removal of excess material) will be left to the patron.
