Printing submissions can be made through the form above or submitted in person via storage device (USB flash drives, etc). All files must be in either .stl, .obj or .thing format. The printer uses PLA (PolyLactic Acid) filament and comes in a variety of colors. All submissions will be added to a printing queue and you will be notified by a library staff member when your project is ready for pick up. Please be aware that wait times can vary on any given day. The Library reserves the right to deny any submissions that may violate our 3D Printing Policy.
The cost of printing is $1.00 per hour or $0.25 per 15 minutes. Patrons who do not pick up their finished projects within one week will have the cost charged to their library account. Please note that larger print jobs will take longer and will cost more to print.
The Makerbot Replicator+ printer has a maximum build volume of 11.6 X 7.6 X 6.5 in.
