3D Printing Requests

How it works

To 3D print an object at the library you can either sign up for a one-on-one session with a library staff member or submit a file and pick up your object at the reference desk when it is ready. 

First you will need an object you would like to print. You can create an object using 3D modeling software (we recommend Tinkercad for beginners) or download an object from a site like Thingiverse
Second you will need to submit a request form.

Fill out the form and a staff member will review your request and contact you within one week to discuss any details or scheduling regarding your print job.

Once the print is completed, you will be contacted again to collect your print at the reference desk. Please be aware that prints are not always successful. 


  • All print jobs must be limited to a 1 hour print time. If your object is large, this may require re-sizing your object or breaking it into multiple parts. 
  • You are limited to submitting two print jobs per month.
  • All objects will be printed in PLA (Polylactic Acid) which is a biodegradable plastic made from corn. (Note: this plastic is not considered food-safe).
  • We cannot offer color selection at this time. All prints will be in the color of filament currently being used by the library.
  • You must be over 12 years of age to schedule a one-on-one appointment. Anyone younger than 12 years old will need to be accompanied by an adult.
  • The library has the right to refuse any print requests and the printer may not be used to create any objects which violate laws, were designed with the intent to harm, are obscene, or violate another’s intellectual property rights in any way.
