Put your Kitchener home on the map!

The City of Kitchener’s Neighbours Day is designed to showcase the many programs, services, and facilities available throughout our great city. It’s a day for everyone: kids, teens, adults, and seniors.

From now until the third annual Neighbours Day on June 10, use our 3D printers to create a mini model of your home, and help us create your neighbourhood on a giant map.

STEP ONE
Use Tinkercad to design your home
OR
Use Thingiverse to find a pre-designed model that looks like your home
Design at home, or at any library location.

STEP TWO
3D print your project at Studio Central (at Central Library)
or at Country Hills Community Library
OR
Leave your file with us, and we’ll print it for you

Need help? Staff are available to answer your questions or to help with your 3D printing project. Just ask us!

3D printed models of City Hall, a house, and Central Libary

Artist Louise Jessup is creating a large map of the neighbourhoods of Kitchener as a puzzle. Puzzle pieces for the neighbourhoods near each library will be at that library on Neighbours Day. All 3D-printed homes will remain at the library and will populate the maps for Neighbours Day.

Visit your library location on Saturday, June 10 to see the results! Come and see your house on the map in YOUR neighbourhood.

Take pictures and share them using the hashtag #PrintMyHood.
