3D Printer

What is 3D printing? 3D printing involves a printer that uses plastic to create three-dimensional objects. Our particular printer is manufactured by the company Deezmaker. The printer is based off a RepRap model, which is an open source 3D printer. That makes this particular printer really adaptable and expandable for the library. It is self-replicating. If CHPL decides to upgrade or expand the scale of the printer, or if we need to replace a particular part, we most likely could print the parts we need ourselves. The Bukobot can also work with a multitude of open source software such as Cora or Repetier-Host or websites including Thingaverse or Tinkercad.

Please visit our Events Calendar for an event to see a demo of 3D printing or to sign up for time to print your own creations.

If you have questions, please call Andy Woodworth at 856-903-1226 or email awoodworth@chplnj.org or use this form.

CHPL graciously thanks the Friends of the Cherry Hill Public Library's Giftshop for their support and extending the opportunity to acquire a 3D printer for the Cherry Hill community.
