3D Print at the chbMAKERS’ Corner

You can use our 3D printer without even leaving home! Email YA Librarian Catherine Findorak (cfindorak@chboothlibrary.org) with the 3D model in .stl file format and your desired filament color, and we’ll let you know when you can pick up your print.

This service is limited to C.H. Booth Library card holders only. Individuals are limited to 3 hours of print time per week. Your print may be resized to fit this time limit. If your design must be resized, library staff will let you know before printing. 

To find ready-to-print files to print, try Thingiverse.com. You can find all sorts of fun things to print online, from key chains to household tools.

To try to design your own 3D models, try TinkerCAD. TinkerCAD is free and offers tutorials to get you started.

Library staff are unable to assist with the designing of 3D models. The library is not responsible for the quality of your design.
