Maker Space

An Ultimaker 2+ 3D printer is available for Kingsport Public Library cardholders 16 or older in good standing. Bring print file to library staff on USB flash in .stl format. Library staff will print the job as the current print queue allows; prints are usually completed within a few days to a week. We cannot print objects that require more than 10 hours to complete. You must clean your own rafts and supports. The library uses PLA and nGen filament and the Library reserves the right to refuse any 3D print request. Print cost is $1.00 for each print set up plus $0.15 per gram of filament. The Matter and Form 3D scanner is also available, at no cost. Detailed 3D printer policy is available here. Call the reference department at 224-2539 for more information.
