The library's 3D printer is a Ultimaker 2+. The material used in the printer is biodegradable PLA-plastic. 3D models are used for printing.
The software used for preparing the files for printing is Ultimaker Cura. Using the software, it's possible to make changes to the 3D model and convert the file into a format that the Ultimaker 2+ can read.
The printing time is affected by the 3D model's size, shape and number of details. An object with an approximate diameter of 10cm takes about 4 hours to print.
Cura software gives the user an estimate on how long the printing process will take. The printing time is displayed on the printer's screen during the process.
