Westport MakerSpace Scheduling

How do I learn to use a 3D Printer?

PLEASE NOTE: The MakerSpace is back! We have moved to the balcony on the 3rd floor of the library and have resumed trainings.

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. 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. Printing appointments are dependent on the availability of the printers.

Cost: Westport residents do not pay to use the 3D printers. Non-residents pay $10 an hour for the trainings and printer appointments.There is no "drop in" use of the printers. All appointments must be made in advance. Visitors to the MakerSpace must sign in. 

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.
