How to 3D Print in the Library

 The 3D printing service is currently suspended due to the COVID-19 situation and related changes to campus operations. 

If you have questions about 3D printing, please contact us and we will do our best to assist you remotely. We can provide information and support through the following channels:


1. Create your own design, or choose from designs shared by others. 

To get help, email library.3dprinting@durhamcollege.ca

2. Fill in the request form and upload your file. The request form has been temporarily removed while the service is suspended. 

3. Approve the cost. 

  • We will email you the estimated cost ($1.50/hour) and print date. 
  • To estimate on your own, download Cura (free), open your file, and view the estimated print time. 

4. Pick up your completed object.

  • We will email you when the print is complete.
  • If you are located at the Whitby Campus, we will mail your print to Whitby Campus Library for pickup.
