3D Printers

3D Printer

3D printers are available at the Library MakerSpace or at Research 3D printing. 3D printers are rapid prototyping technology that enable users to take 3D models and designs and translate them into physical objects. They're being used for a wide array of applications beyond just industrial prototyping. They open up a wide array of possibilities from one-off parts to iterative design, engineering, and artistic expression. The Library MakerSpace offers a variety of 3D printers which use low-cost PLA filament, enabling patrons to explore and test the possibilities of the technology. The Library MakerSpace offers 3D workshop for hands on training. Workshops are listed on the libraries Events calendar.

Virtual Reality Headsets
