3D Printing @ The Haddonfield Library
The Library offers a 3D printing service for library card holders. Interested individuals may email their file (in .obj or .stl format) and request form to email@example.com or drop off the file on a flash drive along with completed form at the library. Below is our printer policy and some helpful links to get you started.
3D Printer Policy
- The library’s 3D printers may be used only for lawful purposes. Users will not be permitted to use the 3D printers to create material that is:
- Prohibited by local, state or federal law.
- In violation of another’s intellectual property rights. For example, the printers will not be used to reproduce material that is subject to copyright, patent or trademark protection.
- The patron is solely responsible for any violation of copyright, patent or trademark laws.
- Supervision of the use of the 3D printer by library staff does not constitute knowledge, or acknowledgement, of any unapparent final use of the 3D product, and the library specifically disclaims any knowledge thereof.
- The library reserves the right to refuse any 3D print request, or stop printing any 3D print request, that is illegal, violates intellectual property law, or is structurally unsound.
- The library staff retains the right to alter the queue based on print time and staff availability.
- Patrons must receive training from the library before using the printer but any patron may submit a print job to the library.
- Patrons will be charged $0.35 per gram of filament including supports and rafts. Library staff will weigh and total the cost after the print has ended. Only filament provided by the library may be used.
- Projects not picked up after 7 days become the property of the library. The library is not responsible for storing or saving designs in digital or print format.
- Users are responsible for ensuring that their 3D design is properly prepared. The quality of the resulting print is the sole responsibility of the user.
- The library cannot guarantee model quality or stability, confidentiality of designs, or specific delivery times. Refunds and re-prints will only be available in the event of machine malfunction.
