While the library and the Collaboratory are closed 11/13-12/7, we are accepting 3D print requests from Northbrook Public Library cardholders.
Please read our Rules about 3D printing before emailing us your model. Only one .stl file per person may be submitted and in the queue at any time.
To submit a print, compose an email and include the following:
- Your name
- Your library card number
- Your preferred color, selected from the list on this page
- The dimensions of your object in millimeters
- Attach the .stl file of your design
Send your email to email@example.com. We will review your file and respond within 2 business days.
We charge $0.06 per gram of material used to print an object, including supports and rafts. An estimate will be calculated by the software used to prepare the file for printing and the estimate will be communicated to you prior to adding the print to the queue. You must agree to pay the final cost as determined by the actual weight of the object, including rafts and supports. The final cost will be added a fee to your library card.
It typically takes 2-4 weeks to complete your object.
We will email you when your object is ready.
You may pick it up your object at the check out desk on the first floor and pay for it at that time.
