How To Use our 3D Printers
We have five Ultimaker 2+ 3D printers across our library service located at:
- Reference Library, City Library Grand Parade
- Children's and Teens' Library, City Library Grand Parade
- Bishopstown Library
- Hollyhill Library
- Glanmire Library
Please watch our YouTube video on how to use them:
You can use the 3D printer to print 3D models you have downloaded or created yourself. You can download models from www.thingiverse.com, www.myminifactory.com, www.youmagine.com, or www.ultimaker.com.
You can create your own design online on 3D design websites such as Tinkercad.
Download free CURA software. Designs need to be run through the CURA software in order to be read by the Ultimaker 2+.
Save your design to an SD card and give it to a staff member to be printed. Please save your design on another device at home as well.
Maximum print time: 8 hours
Fair usage policy applies. Maximum of 1 job per week, depending on demand.
Please be advised that we do not allow printing of weapons, parts of weapons, illegal items, or items that are likely to cause offense.
