3D PRINTING

3D Printing at Ridgewood Public Library 

Ridgewood Public Library has a MakerBot 3D printer which prints digital designs as 3D objects in a non-toxic biodegradable plastic called PLA (available in a variety of colors).  Please read the 3D Printing Policy for complete details.

3D design software allows you to construct a 3D model by simply dragging and dropping shapes (programming knowledge not necessary). The computers in the Library’s Habernickel Technology Training Center have the following free and open-source design software:

 

 

 

 

 

The software associated sites also offer many valuable tools for learning how to create 3D models, along with inspiration, ideas, and downloadable designs.
