Bring your .STL file, saved on a flash drive, to the library Reference Desk any time during our regular open hours. When possible, we will provide a cost estimate at the time of drop-off. If staff is unable to provide an estimate at that time, we will contact you with an estimate before printing begins.
Each component/object should be saved as one file and each file will be printed in a single color ABS plastic filament.
Color availability is subject to change but the library frequently carries the following: white, black, gray, blue, red, purple, pink, yellow, and orange. Please ask to see our current color selection when the file is dropped off.
Objects must be no larger than 9" x 9" x 9"
The cost is 10¢ per gram of plastic filament, with a $1 minimum. The total cost is determined by the weight of the completed object.
Once your object is completed, we will contact you to let you know your item is ready for pickup.
Objects will be held for pick-up for 7 days at the Reference Desk.
