Moline Public Library has a 3D Printer that is available to patrons!
Moline Public Library’s 3D Printing service provides access to emerging design technologies through 3D printing services to inspire and help the community bring 3D creations to life.
Design and print models, game pieces, jewelry and gifts. Functional or fantastic - the sky is the limit!
To use this service you just need to bring your 3D design (saved as as .obj or .stl file) to the second floor Information Desk and fill out a 3D Printer Patron Form. We'll take it from there!
After staff checks to make sure that we can print the object you will be contacted with an estimated fee and any questions we may have. After that, your print job will be ready within a week.
Max print size is 5.5" x 9" x 5.5"
Pricing is based on final post production weight of the object(s) and will be $0.10 per gram. Patrons will not be charged for the cost of failed prints.
Patrons will be notified when a print job is available for pick up via the contact information provided. Printed items must be picked up within two weeks from the date of the first notice. Items not picked up become property of the library.
Stop by the 2nd floor Information Desk for more information, or call us at (309) 524-2470. For more details on what we can and cannot print, check out the 3D Printer Policy.
