What is it?

A 3D printer builds physical objects from 3-dimensional files. Plastic (called filament) is extruded from a nozzle that builds the object, layer by layer, beginning at the bottom of the design. Use the 3D printer to create a cookie cutter, pen holder, trinket tray, phone stand, and more.

Submit your design to the Makerspace to be printed. The 3D printer is operated exclusively by Makerspace staff.

Our 3D printing service is available to any library cardholder in good standing.

Maximum Build Area: 8" x 9" x 5.5" (203mm x 229mm x 140mm)

Maximum Weight: 100 grams

Time Limits: 8 hours of print time per file, 16 hours per week

Cost: Cost is based on the weight of the item.

Print jobs up to 30 grams cost $1.00. Each additional gram over 30 costs .20 per gram.

*Cost includes material used for for any additional supports to aid in printing. Submissions will be quoted exactly as they are sent.

Pick-up: Once your 3D print is submitted, the Makerspace will notify you with updates to your 3D print submission. Pick-up is available at the Customer Service Desk or Drive-thru window. Print jobs not picked up within 30 days will be discarded and the charge will remain on the library card used to submit the design.
