Cedarburg Library - 3D Printing

Background on 3D printers: Since 2015, Cedarburg Public Library has provided access to 3D printers for the public. We are on our 3rd generation of printers.​

Uses: Our 3D printers have been used over the years to print fun popular, replacement parts, original designs, and prototypes for production research. It is always something new.

Creality CR-6 SE Donation: Our current 3D printer was donated to the library from a purchase during a Kickstarter campaign.

How to Print

Prepare your print: Stop by the library’s Makerlab space to prepare your 3D print. Once it is ready, schedule a time to start your print. It may be right away or it may be within a week. Basic instructions are in the Makerlab and staff can assist if needed.

Starting your print: At the beginning of your reservation, a staff member will load on the filament color of your choice. After it starts, you can stay and watch or stop by after it is printed and pick it up at the Checkout Desk. Reservations can be made for up to 24 hours, if more time is needed, please ask for assistance.
