New 3D Printer, Oh the Possibilites!

The Wawa Public Library is thrilled to make a new 3D printer available for everyone! If you want to give it a try, drop in to the library to see it in action or give us a call to discuss how to get started on your own project.

How does it work?

A 3D printer creates a three-dimensional solid object  from a digital file by adding successive layers of material onto a flat print bed. Each layer can be seen

as a thinly sliced cross section of the object. The final ‘print’ is an object created from a file output by specific software. The children have been very excited about the new 3D Printer. Pictured below is a photo of a young man with his new creation, Micky Mouse. He left very happy and has already chosen a spot for it in his room.

We have made a few tablet Holders that have been sold as well as other items. Next on the block ? I wonder.
