3D Printing at the Central Library

New! Self-Serve 3D Printing begins Monday, October 17

Until then, we will be accepting 3D print submissions via our online form. See our Getting Started: How-To and FAQ for more details.

Self-Serve 3D Printing
Had a chance to dabble in 3D printing by submitting your object for us to print? With our new Self-Serve 3D Printer Service, you can unleash your inner 3D maker and use our MakerBot Replicator 2 printer yourself! How does it all work? To use our 3D printer, you’ll need:
A WPL card
To be 14 years of age or older
To take our 3D Printer Orientation Workshop

Using a 3D Printer
Once you complete our 3D Printer Orientation Workshop, drop by the Central Library second floor information desk to get started using the 3D printer.
Printers are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Reservations are not available.
A maximum of 3 hours is permitted for each print job.

Printing Costs
The cost is $0.50 per 15 minutes (or a portion thereof) of printing. Print times are generated by the 3D printer once the job is complete.

Quick Printing
Don’t feel like taking the 3D Printing Orientation Workshop, or are you under 14 years of age? Request a Quick Print instead!
A Quick Print is a 3D printed object that takes between 15-30 minutes to print and costs $1.00.
To get a Quick Print, you’ll need to:
Visit staff at the Central Library second floor information desk and pick your object from our Quick Print list.
Pay for your object at the time of requesting.
Stay in the library while your object prints.
Show off your Quick Print to your family and friends!
Quick Print requests are subject to 3D printer availability. We are unable to take requests via email or phone.

3D Printing Workshops
Our 3D Printer Orientation and 3D Design workshops are offered monthly and registration is required. If a workshop is full, you can be added to the waitlist and we will contact you if space becomes available.
