Holly Arnason
Edmonton Public Library, Associate Manager, Makerspace

Attending and completing this free, online workshop gives you access to use Edmonton Public Library's 3D printers virtually or in-person at the Stanley A. Milner Makerspace! Hosted by friendly and knowledgeable EPL staff, this training will prepare you to run a 3D printer and covers: EPL's 3D printing service guidelines and hours of operation, safety, basic concepts and operation of the 3D printer, and an overview for selecting and setting up suitable digital models for the 3D printing process.

EPL's 3D printing service currently allows customer print jobs up to 12 hours in duration, uses a single nozzle 3D printer (one colour at a time), and charges 10 cents per gram for PLA plastic used in customer projects.

Participants require an Edmonton Public Library membership card or an eligible Edmonton-area library card so that we can record and update your 3D printing certification status. Edmonton Public Library cards are free for residents and can be created online.

3D printing service participants must be at least 12 years of age or accompanied by a caregiver.
