3D Printing

3D printers let you print 3D objects — toys, jewelry, phone cases, home appliances and much more. Use ready-to-print designs from websites (e.g. Thingiverse) or create your own.

All of the library's Digital Innovation Hubs offer 3D printers and a variety of design software. Staff are available to help you get started.
