3d Maker Lab

Each Tuesday at 5 p.m. in the Youth Department (No class will be held on Oct. 31)

Curious about what a 3D printer is? Stop by one of our MakerLabs, see it in action and ask one of our Makers in Residence questions about the process. She can show you how the basics of operating our MakerBot Replicator 2 and how to use the library's computers and free CAD software to design, modify or download a 3-D model for printing. Participants will progress through the labs at their own pace. Once you can demonstrate an independent understanding of the printing process, you're welcome to sign up to use our 3D printer anytime it's not in use.
