The Lewiston City Library offers 3D printing services to inspire interest in the 21st century design and "making" tools. The library operates a Lulzbot Mini 3D printer and a larger Lulzbot Taz 6 3D printer.
You may download pre-made designs or use 3D modeling software to create your own design.
To print your creation at the Library bring a USB flash drive containing the object in .stl format to the Library's 2nd Floor Help Desk. Library staff will copy the .stl file and return the USB flash drive to you within minutes.
Library staff will print the objects. There is no charge for 3D printing services at this time. It may take up to 7 days for your request to be printed.
