3D Printer Workshop

3D Printing: You Path to World Domination

Hey, Dunedin, is 3D printing a popular library thing in NZ? The printers get a lot of "gee whiz, that's amazing!" attention. The printer is very neat but children then need to learn how to use computer software packages to create the items.

I explained how the printer works and is set-up. We used a mobile computer lab to show the simple online design resources at tinkercad.com and design some objects.

No. We don't know of any library in New Zealand that has one. I have never seen one actually work.
