3D printers have been purchased for library
As part of a McMahon Foundation grant provided to the library, two Lulzbot TAZ 6 3D printers have been purchased for public use and the Lawton Public Library will host a 3D printing class at the library to introduce individuals to the basics of 3D printing.
The class will be from 3-4 p.m. Saturday in meeting room two at the library, 110 SW 4th. Ages 12 and older are welcome to attend.
Individuals will learn about the library's policies regarding 3D printing, discover and download 3D projects from the internet, prepare a project for printing using Cura, and place an order for a 3D print at the library. Staff will share ideas and completed 3D printing projects in order to inspire people to create projects of their own. Participants will have the opportunity for hands-on experience with Cura at the end of the class.
In addition to the two 3D printers, the McMahon Foundation grant also provided 20 new computers with software for the library computer lab and Professional Development Center and a network upgrade that provides increased Internet speed and additional Wi-Fi access points throughout the library.
