KINGSPORT, TN (WJHL) – 3D printing is now on the market to residents in the Model City. A few weeks ago, Kingsport Public Library got a 3D printing device and a 3D scanner.
“We’re utilized to content consumption and now we are getting into content creation,” said Kingsport Public Library Manager Helen Whittaker.
Whittaker told News Channel 11, they discovered several practical uses for the tools.
“One of our handles on our children’s kitchen broke, so we took the working handle and we created a scan of which and we printed a copy of which with the 3D printing device,” said Whittaker.
For a $1 print fee plus 15 cents of filament, Whittaker said library card holders can bring in a print file and trained staff participants can begin the system.
Whittaker said many jobs can cost less than $5 building it a quite accessible and low-cost tool.
