3D Printing

Library 3D Printer

3D Printing is now available at the Sachse Public Library!  You can print designs found online from sites like Thingiverse or MyMiniFactory, or create your own unique design using CAD software, such as TinkerCAD.  When you’re ready to print, save your design as an .STL file and bring it to the Library on a flash drive.
