The Form 1 Printer

Darien Library now offers the superior printing quality of the Form 1 3D printer for our patrons. Use your imagination to print objects for work, school, proofs of concept designs, and more! 

The Form 1 high resolution printer can produce objects within 4.9 x 4.9 and 6.5 inches with resolution of up to 0.001 inches per layer using stereolithography technology. Compatible with the following file formats: .stl, .obj, and .form.

For more info on the Form 1 printer, visit the formlabs website.

How to print using the Form 1:

Submit a file that meets the above requirements to helpdesk@darienlibrary.org (15mb attachment limit), or send an Internet link to the object along with the exact specifications, otherwise bring it in to your Help Desk on a flash drive or other media.

Print time is up to 3 days from submission.

The print material is clear resin. Will have white in the future as a choice.

Cost:

25 cents per gram of the fully printed object including supports. Supports are the extra printed components that gives the structure the help it needs to print without collapsing. An example would be supports to hold up a running T-rex's head while it prints!
