New For You! 3D Printing

The St. Clairsville Public Library’s 3D printer is available for making three-dimensional objects in plastic using a design that is uploaded from a digital computer file. We have a multitude of filament colors and the average print time is one week. 

Cost: Free! Thanks to a grant from the EQT Foundation. 

Requesting a print job: Browse the many 3D objects available on the thingiverse.com website and select one that you want to 3D print. Email the website link of your 3D object - along with the color, quantity, and any changes needed - to the email address: 3dprinting@stclibrary.org and trained library staff will handle your request. Include your library card number in the email or call the library. 

Colors available: Black, Grey, Brown, Copper, Gold, Army Green, Glow in the Dark, Red Flexible Filament. 

Notification when your print job is ready: The average print time is one week. Once your print job is ready, you will receive an email with instructions for picking up your print job.
