A 3D printer works by depositing a substance layer by layer until an object is formed. The printer in the Taylor Family Digital Library (TFDL) is a consumer-level machine, meaning that it creates small-scale objects using a plastic-based material. The process is much cheaper and less messy compared to that of large, industrial 3D printers.

You can do DIY printing in our Makerspace on the third floor once you've completed a makerspace orientation.

You can also request a full service job where we will print your item for you.
