AACPL recently received a grant for 3D printers and a group of us were trained on how to use it and Arduino.
I’ve never had a chance to interact with a 3D printer so it was a fun experience.
One of the major projects for my LBSC 622 class is to create a MakerSpace that is accessible, so I’m hoping I can use what I’ve learned for that assignment.
The Arduino was more challenging (for me), but after some detailed instruction, we were able to get it to work too.
I looked up the price of personal 3D printers and I saw a range from $500 to $1200 for the model the library has, but many are way higher than that. Perhaps we can get a grant for the 3D printer that makes pancakes. 🙂
