3D Printing Now Available at the Main Branch!

Thanks to the support from the community at our Trivia Night and a generous donation from the Welland Lion’s Club, patrons can now visit the main branch of the Welland Public Library to design three- dimensional objects that can be printed on our Flashforge Dreamer 3D Printer! Check out some of the things (http://wellandlibrary NULL.ca/kids-space/) we have printed so far!

Once you register and successfully complete a 3D printer training session, you will be ready to upload a file using the form (http://wellandlibrary NULL.ca/eresources/3d-printing/upload-3d-prints/) on our website that will be printed when time allows.  Children are welcome to participate in the fun, but must be accompanied by an adult who has completed the training course. More information is available here (http://wellandlibrary NULL.ca/eresources/3d-printing/).

All 3D prints are free-of-charge in 2016 and you can print up to 3 objects per week. Please note that while staff will make every effort to accommodate specific requests for size and colour, this may result in longer wait times for your printed objects.

For more information, please drop by any Welland Public Library branch or call 905-734-6210, ext. 2521 and staff would be happy to answer any questions that you may have. To avoid disappointment, please call ahead to ensure that the printer is operational prior to your visit.

The Welland Public Library is also taking this technology on the road! If your school, service group, business or organization is interested in a free demonstration or training session, please call 905-734-6210, ext 5202 to arrange a visit!
