The Library provides a limited amount of PLA (Polylactic Acid) filament to be used within reason. If you plan to use more than 30 grams of filament per print, please purchase your own filament. If you need to change out any filament spool, do not do this yourself - you must request assistance.
Anyone who wishes to use the 3D printer MUST go through 3D Printing Orientation & Safety Training that includes how to use the printer and safety considerations.
Availability of the 3D Printer is on a first come, first used basis.
Contact Stacy Bruss (GB134), Diann Cullen (GB304A), Joan Segal (GB135), or the Reference Librarian (2C407) to unlock the door to DSRC GB301.
Access to the 3D Printing Room is during Library operating hours only from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Tinkercad is an easy-to-use web-based CAD software that can be used to create designs. However, your IT department may have free access to other CAD software; contact your IT person to inquire. To work from existing designs and/or to get ideas, visit websites such as Thingiverse or Yeggi.
