3D printing is available at Spokane Valley Library. Our 3D printers are an Ultimaker 3 and Ultimaker S3, available for public use.
The 3D printer builds an object from a digital file by adding layer after layer of plastic filament. It’s a little bit like a hot glue gun, but instead of glue it extrudes a hard bioplastic derived from renewable starch-based resources.
Print figures with moveable parts, custom mobile phone charging stands, prosthesis prototypes, and more. Few limitations exist when it comes to 3D printing.
New to 3D printing?
For quick questions about 3D printing, call 509.893.8400 or email 3Dprint@scld.org. For more in-depth questions and one-on-one help with 3D printing, including how to use software for 3D printing, you can request an appointment using the Book-a-Librarian form.
You can also learn about Tinkercad (CAD software), used to create your own 3D renderings, by signing up for a 3D Printing workshop.
See one of our 3D printers in action at the Spokane Valley Library during open hours. Ask staff at the front desk to learn more about it.
Have experience with 3D printing?
Please review the basic information and settings below before submitting your 3D printing designs.
We will contact you within 3–5 business days to schedule an appointment to discuss 3D printing.
For 3D design submissions
We will contact you when your print job is finished, or if we have questions about your design. Wait times for 3D printing may be longer when 3D printing demand is high with many designs in the print queue.
