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.

 

Thank You to The Wawa Rotary Club

The staff and board of the Wawa Public Library would like to thank The Wawa Rotary Club for their very generous donation that enabled us to purchase a 3D Printer.  The Rotary Club has always been a great supporter of our Library and our community and we appreciate all that they do.

3D Printer

is an amazing tool that can be used in so many ways. We can make all kinds of things such as game pieces, jewelry and toys. We can give back to our community by printing mask holders for health care, save money by printing book ends or shelf label holders for the library. We are excited to see all the uses we may have for the 3D Printer!

     Feel free to drop in and see what we’re printing.
