3D Printing at the Library
The procedures for printing from the Library’s 3D printers are as follows:
The 3D printer can be used with basic knowledge of Computer Assisted Drawing (CAD). Creating a new design requires an advanced knowledge of 3D modeling software products.
Video tutorials that accompany CAD programs can be of assistance.
Any 3D drafting software may be used to create a design as long as the file can be saved in .stl, .obj, or .thing file format.
