3D printing Services at the Library

Purpose: 3D printing at the library supports the library’s mission and vision by inspiring creativity and innovation, empowering patrons to bring their ideas to life, and connecting our community to new technology and tools.

How it works:

  • First you will need a 3D model to submit for printing. You can create an object using 3D modeling software (we recommend Tinkercad for beginners) or download a copyright- or license-free object from a site such as Thingiverse.
  • Submit your file through our 3D print request form.
  • Within one week, a staff member will contact you to either gather further details if needed, or to notify you that the print is complete. Please be aware that prints are not always successful.
  • Once the 3D object is ready, you will receive email notification and you can pick up your item at the second-floor desk anytime the library is open.

The Details:

  • You may submit TWO 1-hour prints or ONE 2-hour print per month.
  • If your object is too large, library staff may need to scale it down.
  • All objects will be printed in PLA (Polylactic Acid)—a biodegradable plastic made from corn.
  • We cannot fulfill object color requests—all items will be printed in the color of filament currently loaded in the 3D printer.
  • The library has the right to refuse any print requests and the printer may not be used to create objects which violate laws, were designed with the intent to harm, are obscene, or violate another’s intellectual property rights in any way.
