3D Printing

While here at Penn Yan Public Library we don’t have an on-site 3D printer, Southern Tier Library System patrons have access to multiple 3D printers through the System and can print for a reasonable cost. Contact us to learn more; please call 315-536-6114 and ask to speak to Alex or Sarah.

MakerBot Replicator 2

The MakerBot Replicator 2 uses PLA filament, which is food-safe, but not dishwasher- or microwave-safe. Objects made from PLA should be hand-washed and may be brittle, especially if they are thin.
