3DPrinter_Header

Yes, all the rumours are true. Your Library has a 3D printer available for public use.

The Library has our newer LulzBot Mini 3d printer available. This printer use a variety of filament, like an environmentally friendly filament which is a bioplastic that is made from corn. The 3d printer can be found at the Central Library in on the iHelp Desk. Print something that can physically be taken from the Library, for the price of a coffee? A variety of items can be created from Eifel Tower and other building replicas to iphone cases to jewelry such as rings and bracelets, all from a printer the size of a microwave. The 3D printer can be used during open library hours seven days a week and is available for Pickering Public Library card holders. The cost is $0.50 cents for up to 20 minutes of use. A one hour print job would cost $1.50.
