3-D Printing

3-D printing is a form of additive manufacturing that makes three dimensional solid objects from a digital file, using molten plastic, computer-driven motors, and Cartesian geometry. The Youth Services department has a Prusa i3MK3s at each library building, and can print objects up to 9x8x8 inches using PLA or PET-G filament.

We offer 3D printing to kids. If you would like to learn more about the process and print your own project, you can request an appointment by asking at the desk, calling us at 757.741.3300, option 4, or emailing us at sprocket@wrl.org. Appointments are scheduled for an hour and you can make two appointments per month. Please note that, while we want to make the process as hands-on as possible, if your print will take more than three hours we cannot guarantee that we will be able to start it while you’re at the library.
