3D Printing

3D Printing at the Library

Patrons can learn how 3D printing technology works by using our Lulzbot Mini2 3D Printer. Our small, easy-to-use machine can print designs up to 6 1/4 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. When the library building is open, patrons are welcome to submit files for printing, and are charged 20 cents per gram of material used.  If you have a question about 3D printing while the building is closed, please email reference@voorpl.org.
