3D Printing

The main library has a MakerBot Replicator 3D printer.

  • Use of the printer is by appointment only.
  • Our “Introduction to 3D Printing” instructional session is required prior to using the 3D printer independently. Instruction is by appointment only, for individuals or small groups.

For independent printer use:

  • There is a fee of $2 for prints up to 6 hours and $4 for prints from 6-11 hours.
  • Patrons must sign both a user agreement and waiver of liability.
  • Print jobs must not be longer than 11 hours.
  • All printing must be completed 1/2 hour before the library closes (see hours here).

Intro to 3D Session: Includes an introduction to the basics of working with the 3D printer, and simple design using Thingiverse and Tinkercad software. Open to age 12 and up. Laptops/devices welcome.

The library’s 3D printer is courtesy of the Friends of the Beverly Public Library.
