The library has an "Ultimaker 2" 3D printer in the 2nd floor Computer Lab. We offer some basic classes about 3D printing, and can print 3D objects from your file (we do not have a 3D scanner at this time, so we can't make a copy of an object you bring in—you will need to send us a 3D file of the object you want printed. Please see our 3D printing procedure page for more details and limitations)
