Use the public 3D Printers at the Technology Engagement Center in Murfreesboro

(Rutherford County, Tenn.) - Local library branches have been doing a number of things to change with the times, equaling more technologically advanced libraries in places like Murfreesboro and Smyrna. One of the many things that WGNS has reported in the past is the availability of 3-D Printers. Trey Gwinn with the Rutherford County Library System told us… 3D printers are available on a first come-first serve basis at the Technology Engagement Center (306 Minerva Drive) in Murfreesboro. The 3D printers can print in PLA and ABS plastic, though PLA is preferred for best results.

LIBRARY CARD NOT ALWAYS NEEDED: It is of importance to note, you don't have to have a library card to use a large number of services offered by the Rutherford County Library System. The same is true to participate in programs offered by the library branches, a library card is not required. It is however required if you are checking out books or materials from the different library branches.
