Whether you are new to 3D printing or an advanced designer you've come to the right place. The Hunterdon County Library's offers 3D printing in PLA for $.10/gram and Onyx Carbon Fiber for $.30/gram. This guide provides resources for both beginners and more advanced designers to explore, learn and design. We offer a 3D printing service for both PLA and Onyx via an online form.
3D printing is the process of making a physical object from a three dimensional digital model. The Hunterdon County Library 3d printer does this by laying down many successive thin layers of PLA (polylactic acid) filament. The material used, PLA, comes on a spool that feeds into a heated extruder. PLA comes in many colors and is a biodegradable plastic, breaking down into harmless lactic acid.
