We have two MakerBot Replicator 2 printers available for use by library members. Our printers use PLA Filament and a variety of colours are available to choose from. If you are new to 3D printing, here is an 3D printing overview.
What to Print?
Thingiverse has a large catalogue of objects to help you get started.
Or, design your own 3D objects using Blender. This program is installed for library member use at the Logan Hyperdome Library.
How to Print?
Submit your 3D print using the form below and library staff will print your object for you.
When you pick up your completed 3D object, you may need to do some clean-up. This includes removing extra pieces called 'rafts'. Rafts keep your 3D object stable during the printing process. See below for useful tips and tricks on clean-up and raft removal:
- Post processing of 3D polymer prints
- Finishing and post-processing your 3D printed objects
- Support material
- Removing support raft (example)
Printing will begin after payment has been received. To make a payment, please use the credit on your library card or pay in person at the Logan Hyperdome library. We do not provide refunds for printing defects.
