3D printing

Woollahra Library at Double Bay now offers a Flashforge Creator 3 for library members.

Members are encouraged to attend the Maker Creator: 3D Printing Workshop (12+) that is held every month. Book via the library Events page or call 02 9391 7100.

How it works

Specifications and filament
Designs can be printed from .STL files with a maximum built volume of 300 x 249 x 200mm. All 3D printing will use PLA filament (available in white, red, blue and black colour), or PETG filament (available in black, white, silver, pink, yellow, grey, brown, gold, purple, traffic red, orange and natural colour)

Printing times
To get a 3D print underway book your session between Monday to Friday 10 am - 5 pm.
On arrival please see a staff member to confirm the print design, cost (setup fee and total filament usage) and estimated time.

A maximum of 7 hours of print time will be allowed per person. Printing must be finished before library closing time.

Cost

The cost of printing and filament usage will be paid upfront. Customers are responsible for the cost associated with errors in the file, incorrect files, and breakage of parts due to insufficient strength or mishandling. Refunds will be issued in case if the 3D Printer malfunctions as a credit to the customer’s library card only.

Fees are listed below.
