Do you offer classes on Maker Lab Equipment?
The Library offers classes on basic 3D modeling and on creating vinyl cutter designs. See the events calendar for upcoming classes.
Where can I submit project files?

What does it cost to print 3D objects?
There is currently no charge for 3D prints or vinyl prints. (See the Maker Lab policy for limitations.) The library does reserve the right to begin charging in the future.
