Print your ideas into reality.
Mansfield/Richland County Public Library provides 3D printing services to the public for creative, educational and practical purposes. The library’s 3D printer(s) are used to produce three-dimensional objects in PLA (polylactic acid) plastic using a design that is uploaded from a digital file submitted by the customer.
Check out our event calendar for upcoming 3D Printing classes, and other Learning Lab classes and programs.
The Learning Lab currently has two 3D printers, an Imade JellyBOX 2 and a XYZ DaVinci 1.0. Both are small FFM, fused filament manufacturing, printers.
Anyone 18 years or older with an MRCPL library card in good standing can use our printers.
We’ll do the printing for you! Send us your file using this link.
You don’t have to design one yourself! Ready-made designs can be downloaded from sites such as Thingiverse.
Each individual is limited to two prints per week.
We use PLA (polyactic acid) plastic.
The cost is $0.10 per gram of material. An estimate of the cost will be generated before we begin printing.
Only one color from the list below can be used per print.
You can pick up your print from the checkout desk at the Main Library or your local branch location.
We aim to complete your print within a week of submission. You will be notified when it’s ready.
