The Peterson Library has a MakerBot 3D printer.  Patrons may request 3D prints to be made within the following guidelines:

Makerspace: 3D Printing, Conditions of Use 

1. Patrons must have a current Peterson Library account in good standing in order to submit designs to be printed using the 3D printer. 

2. Peterson Library staff will handle print requests on a first come, first served basis, and staff will review each object file before it is cleared for 3D printing. Peterson Library staff retains the right to refuse or deny any 3D printing request. 

3. Only trained Peterson Library staff will operate 3D printers. Patrons are not permitted to operate, calibrate, or otherwise manipulate equipment. 

4. Patrons are limited to one print request per week, and individual print jobs may not exceed 5 hours. Requests made outside of these parameters will be considered on a case-by-case basis, at the discretion of Peterson Library staff.  

5. Please allow 2-3 business days for each request; however, print times are estimates and pick up times cannot be guaranteed.  

6. Projects not picked up by patrons after 30 days from notification that the project is complete will become the property of the Peterson Library. 

7. A 3D printing request must be an STL file and submitted on a personal flash drive containing no other files. Print requests will be denied if the submitted flash drive contains any files other than the one requested to be 3D printed. The flash drive will be returned when the 3D print request is picked up. Files will be printed as is on the flash drive; Peterson Library staff will not adjust or otherwise manipulate the files. 

8. Only Peterson Library owned materials (filament) shall be used in the creation of any object. Filament selection will be made at the discretion of Peterson Library staff.  

9. The 3D printer must be used only for lawful purposes. It  may not be used to create a weapon of any kind or objects that:

  • Are prohibited by local, state, or federal law.
  • Are inappropriate for the library and public environment.
  • May cause harm, be unsafe, or pose an immediate danger or threat to oneself or the well-being of anyone else.
  • Are subject to a legal copyright, patent, or trademark. 

10. Supervision of the printing process by Peterson Library staff does not constitute knowledge, or acknowledgment, of the final use of the 3D printer’s objects, nor of the lawful status of said objects. 

11. Due to the nature of 3D printing, no file is guaranteed to print successfully, and minor flaws and imperfections can be expected, such as small cracks and warping at the bottom of the print. Printed objects from the 3D printer are provided “as-is” and without warranties of any kind, either express or implied. 

12. Please note that the 3D printer is viewable by the public. Peterson Library staff may photograph completed or in process 3D prints for marketing and promotional purposes. If you do not want your item used in this manner, please let Peterson Library staff know immediately.
