The Latest

3D Printing at WTML

3D PrinterThe library's new 3D printer, a MakerBot Replicator Fifth Generation, will soon become available for library patron use.

It can print items up to 10"x8"x6". It works similar to a hot glue gun - it is fed plastic filament that it melts at three times the heat of boiling water. The printer then places miniscule plastic drops where the design tells it to and then builds up the drops to create a 3D object. For further information, please contact Library Director Barbara Bailey by phone at 860-652-7717 or by email at barbara.bailey@glastonbury-ct.gov.

Thank you to the Friends of Welles-Turner Memorial Library for purchasing this printer for public use.
