You can find them next to the New Fiction with the purple 7-day stickers.

      3D Printing at the Library
      Curious about 3D printing? Learn how this technology works by using our Cube 3D Printer. Our small, easy-to-use printer has dual extruders to print in 2 colors and allows printing of designs up to 6 inches cubed; some larger items can be printed as assemblages. You can find an item on a site like Thingiverse, or create a 3D object yourself using Tinkercad, SketchUp, or another CAD application. Patrons are welcome to submit files for printing, and are charged 20 cents per gram of material used. Read our policy here. Make an appointment to learn more, submit a file for printing, or get questions answered at the Information Desk or by emailing reference@voorpl.org.
