Westport MakerSpace Scheduling

How do I learn to use a 3D Printer?

* * *

PLEASE NOTE: The MakerSpace is in transition! We are moving in preparation for the Library’s renovation. So effective as of Monday, May 15, 2017 we are temporarily suspending 3D printer training but will be back up soon.

As soon as we know the exact dates for our transitional space we will contact people about trainings and our programs.

Thank you for your patience, and please keep an eye on this page for updates.

To schedule a training with a 3D printer coach, send an email to westportmakes [at] gmail [dot] com (subject: 3D%20Printer%20Session) listing 3 preferred dates and times for an appointment. Please allow at least 72 hours for us to get back to you. (Please note that TWO 1-hour training sessions are required. Once the coach feels you are aware of how the 3D printer functions and how to solve problems when they occur, you can schedule a 2-hour session once a week on the printer. Future times will be dependent upon the availability of printers.)

Cost: Westport residents do not pay to use 3D printing services. Non-residents pay $10 an hour for the training (2 sessions on different days are required) and each use of the printer. There is no "drop in" use of the printers. All appointments must be made in advance.

If you would like to learn about other programs, such as CAD, arduino, or robotics, please send us an westportmakes [at] gmail [dot] com (subject: MakerSpace%20Lessons) (email )and we will do our best to accomodate.  

NOTE: All participants MUST sign a waiver form before working in the MakerSpace.The forms are at the Reference Desk, or can be downloaded below.
