Printing cost:

$8.00 per hour for black high quality Onyx, Kevlar, carbon fibre and fibreglass (Available at Digital Library, 12 Stewart Avenue only).

$4.00 per hour for standard quality PLA printing (Available at Newcastle (City) and Wallsend libraries only). Colours include:

  • Black

  • Purple
  • Orange

In addition to 3D printing, the Digital Library at 12 Stewart Avenue also has a 3D scanner, which can be used to create a virtual, visual representation of an object. This can then be used as a first step to 3D printing its replica.
