The Library’s 3D printer may be used by Pflugerville Library cardholders outside of a scheduled program.

  • The applicant must be a Library cardholder in good standing for 90 days.
  • 3D prints are limited to one per card per week.
  • Print must be submitted as an STL file.
  • Files must be uncorrupted. Staff will not try to print an item more than twice.
  • Prints allowed up to 5 in high x 5 inches wide x 5 in long and must not take longer than 2 hours to print. If larger, the print may be scaled down and/or made hollow to fit the printer’s capacity.
  • The object(s) must be capable of being printed during one run (e.g. 12 small flowers might be printed simultaneously, but a robot of size might require several different print runs).
  • Library print programs take precedence over other print runs.
  • The default print resolution is .3.
  • Received print files may take as long as a week to be printed; the Library will notify the applicant by email when the object is ready for pick-up.
  • As in other Library reserves, printed objects will be held for 3 days.
  • Prints will cost 5 cents a gram up to $3. If the charge is more than $3, you will be contacted to see whether you would still like your print.
  • Fees will be charged to the applicant’s library account, payable upon collection of the print. Cash or check only please.

    Please let us know:

    • Whether you would like a single or dual color print. Dual color prints will only be done with items that are designed for a dual extruder printer, i.e., the file’s components must already be color coded.
    • Your top three color choices. Available colors: Black, Blue, Green, Pink, Yellow, Orange, Gold, Silver, White, Red, Teal. Special colors: Wood/plastic blend, glow-in-the-dark.
