The Waterloo Public Library is pleased to provide access to a Makerbot Replicator+  to our patrons as part of The Hive Maker Colony.​ The purpose of our 3D printer is to encourage users to learn about new technologies, exercise their imaginations, and to create and design new projects.


To request this service, patrons will be required to have an email address; have a valid library card and your account be in good standing; agree to the library’s 3D Printer Policy and submit the 3D printer request form. Upon submission, library staff will review your request and reply with a cost estimate and date the job will be available for pick up. Once approved by the patron, the library will print the job.

All print jobs must fit within the dimensions of the Makerbot Replicator+ parameters: 11.6 x 7.6 x 6.5 inches, or 573 cubic inches. Additional technical specifications can be found here.
