3D printing at the CSM Library

Hands-on 3D printing

Get familiar with the software and with setting up and using the printer (use the basic menu, change the filament, etc). Hands on! 

3D software is available on all library computers. We have only 3 printers so "first come, first served" applies. Use this guide to learn about the software and printers beforehand.

Drop in, no registration necessary. Come alone or bring friends!
