3D printing is a process of making three dimensional solid objects from a digital file, typically by laying down many thin layers of a material in succession.

You can print a wide variety of objects using our 3D printers, from functional prototypes to trinkets.

  • Thingiverse.com is a design community for discovering, making, and sharing 3D printable things. It offers a large selection of 3D files available for download, as well as customizable objects.
  • To create your own files Tinkercad is a great beginners tool, and Blender offers more advanced features. Both are available as free downloads.
  • We prepare files for print in Cura, which is available as a free download and allows you to estimate print times and filament usage.

3-D prints are charged at $0.10 per gram of filament, with a minimum charge of $1.00 per print. You can view the amount of filament needed to print your file in 3D printing applications such as Cura. Staff will provide you with an estimated cost before running your job.

The Deerfield Public Library uses Lulzbot TAZ 6, and Lulzbot Mini 3-D Printers. We print using PLA or PLA+ filament. Currently available colors are listed on the job submit form. We do not offer printing services using ABS filament.
