3D Printing

The Library’s 3D printer is currently out of order and unavailable for use.  We apologize for any inconvenience.

The Villa Park Public Library 3D Printer is available for any patron for the purpose of creating three-dimensional objects from a computer file submitted as an attachment.

Supported Files
The library accepts .STL files. Files can be acquired from 3D printing databases such as Thingiverse.com

Only trained library staff have hands-on access to the 3D printer, materials, or software used.

After a print is received, it may take up to three weeks to complete the printing project. Many projects are completed sooner. Completion depends on how long the printing queue is as well as the size and complexity of the order.  Library staff will contact the patron when their order is complete.
