The Procedure

  1. Design an object either on your own or download a file from an open source website
  2. Submit the file of your object in the form below to have it added to our print queue
  3. Pick up your 3D printed object upon completion

What is the cost?

$1 per hour of printing broken down by the quarter.
Payment is due at pickup of your printed object.

How large can the file be?

The maximum volumes are:

Replicator+ 11.6 L x 7.6 W x 6.5 H inches

Method 6.0 L x 7.5 W x 7.75 H inches

Please note that larger jobs will cost more and will require more time to print. 

Please submit STL or OBJ files

3D Printed Object Request Form

Maximum upload file size: 50 MB. If your file is larger than 50 MBs, please email the Adult Services Desk at adref@portjefflibrary.org. Please read the Library's Policy on 3D Printing.

Object Information

Attach your file here. STL and OBJ files are accepted with a max size of 50 MB. See above link for additional file types.
If your file is from an open source website, provide the URL of the webpage.
Please describe the nature of the file and tell us anything that is pertinent in printing this file. The specific printer will be determined by the staff member as determined by the complexity of the file. If you would like for us to print from a specific printer, please detail below and we will do our best to accommodate your request.

This is because PLA (polylactic acid) emits relatively scentless fumes that are nontoxic. It is also pretty easy to work with, and can be colored nicely with a variety of methods.

Please select up to 2 choices of colors of PLA. We will make every effort to print your object in one of your preferred choices and will contact you if your choice of filament color is no longer available.

The Makerbot Method is the only printer that has dual head extrusion where we offer a water soluble support filament called PVA. If your file is extremely detailed or has hard to reach areas that would make removing supports difficult, we will be utilizing this print option.
