What is a 3D Printer?
A 3D printer is a machine that takes digital files and produces a plastic print-out of your design. The arrival of 3D printers allows anyone to create physical models of their own designs without the need to send out to a special manufacturer. Learn more about 3D printers.
Objects printed with our 3D printers may not be suitable for all applications, such as coming in contact with food, beverages, and consumable products. Please do not place objects in dishwashers, microwaves, or aquariums.
3D objects can be downloaded from a site like Thingiverse. While staff members are unable to show you how to create designs, you can teach yourself using our access to Lynda.com.
Darien Library offers 3D printing to children 12 and under. The Lulzbot printer is located in the TEA Room. Children and their caregivers in grades 3 to 6 may reserve the TEA Room using an online form.
