The Library’s Technology Center is equipped with cutting-edge 3D modeling tools.
Whether you are looking to design a 3D model from scratch or simply print a model you found online, our library has the tools to accommodate most 3D projects.

3D Modeling Design
Patrons have access to several 3D CAD programs installed on computers throughout the Technology Center. For a complete list of software applications available, please see our computer software list here.
3D Printing is available to all patrons upon request.
To submit a model for 3D printing, please complete the 3D-Print Request Form.
Once we receive the completed form, a staff member will contact you to discuss print fees and an estimated time for completion.
A copy of our 3D Printing Policy can be found here.
With a 3D scanner you can make a digital copy of a physical object. The digital copy can be used for 3D printing, game design, virtual and augmented reality projects, and more.
3D scanning is a staff mediated service. To get started with 3D scanning in the Library, please complete our Tech Appointment Request form here.
- 3D scanners may only be used for lawful purposes and for objects appropriate in a public library.
- Printed objects must not infringe upon any third party’s intellectual property rights.
- Objects must not be illegal nor can they be construed as having the intent to harm.
- The library reserves the right to refuse any scan request at the discretion of library staff.
