The Northwest Regional Library System (NORWELD) is lending DPL a 3D printer for the month of August.
A 3D printer can make practically anything: from tiny plastic dinosaurs to custom prosthetic hands!
Programming is appropriate for all ages. Computer experience (mouse and keyboard) is recommended.
We will be doing a number of programs about 3D printing in August, including:
3D Printing: The Promise and the Possibilities (August 3 and 4, 6:30-7:30 PM, Activity Room)
Informational sessions about the history and future of 3D printing, and see the 3D printer work live!
3D Made Easy (Weekly, Limit 6 per session, Computer Lab)
Learn the basics and see how to find free models online to construct with a 3D printer.
SPECIAL PREVIEW JULY 27- SIGN UP AT THE LIBRARY MAIN DESK!
3D Beyond Kitsch (Weekly, Limit 6 per session, Computer Lab)
How to design your own items: cell phone cases, complex toys, custom LEGO-compatible elements, and more!
SPECIAL PREVIEW JULY 29- SIGN UP AT THE LIBRARY MAIN DESK!
Open 3D Lab Time (1-4 PM Weekdays and by appointment, Computer Lab)
The 3D printing lab will be open for several hours each day to freely work on designs and see the 3D printer in operation.
Registration for all programming is open now! Sign up for programming at the main desk.
All 3D printing will be done under the guidance and supervision of the IT Manager, Clint.
Children under 12 participating in programming must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. This will not count toward the limit 6 (you may need to share a computer with your child)
