3D Printing

Our Makerspace features a lineup of 3D-Printers including a MakerBot, Creality, and PRUSA printers. 3D-Printing is available through appointments. Please be aware that files must be reviewed to ensure they comply with library policy. Read and sign the policy below. For further information, please email the Makerspace at makerspace@hhhlibrary.org.

All HHHCL patrons (age 14 and older or younger with an adult) who have a valid library card in good standing (no billed items or excessive fines) can use the 3D printer. Please be aware that several variables may cause your 3D print to not appear as represented. There may be rough edges, size variations, color substitutions, etc.

Patrons will be charged $1.00 per-hour of printing. After your item is printed, you will receive a ‘bill’ for the printing time which can be paid at the Public Service Desk when you go to pick up your 3D-print job.

Request an Appointment to Print

You can request an appointment with one of our “3D guides” for a hands-on experience or send us the file you wanted printed (pending review). This file can be from Thingiverse.com or you can create your own 3D-print file. If you have created your own 3D item, e-mail the .stl, or .obj, to makerspacerequest@hhhlibrary.org for review.

Fill in the form at the bottom of this page to request an appointment.
