Intro to 3D Printer; December 5 and 13

Join us for a demonstration and introduction to 3D printing as the Library celebrates its continued commitment to provide new technology services to the public. This introduction will define 3D printing, how you can print at the Auburn Public Library, plus demonstrate how the printer works.  Time will also be provided to answer any attendee questions. After the program, attendees may sign up for a time to use one of the public computers to make an object of their of own.

3D Printer Policy and Guidlines

The hour-long workshops will take place in the Androscoggin Community Room on the ground level of the library, on Monday, December 5 at 6:30pm, and on Tuesday, December 13 at 1:30pm. They are free and open to the public.

Participants will explore the basics of 3D printing, review the library’s policies and procedures, and learn how to search for 3D printing projects. A printer demonstration will be offered, and attendees will have the opportunity to schedule printer time to create their personal projects.

The acquisition of the 3D printer was made possible by a grant from a donor-advised fund through the Maine Community Foundation. The grant also provided funds for a new Mac Air and two iPads for public use at the library. For more information, call 333-6640, ext. 4.
