3D Printing in Micanopy

Micanopy library will be hosting the library's CREATEspace in March!

playing with MakeyMakey at CREATEspace

Libraries around the country have been getting into the makerspace movement. An offspring of traditional DIY (Do It Yourself), makerspaces are about providing the space and technology for anyone to build, create, and design with computers and equipment that most households don't have readily available. CREATEspace is Alachua County Library's collection of techno-tools, toys, and computer programs that has been popular at the main library location and is now traveling to library branches. Design your own 3D print job on the laptops and have it printed out on the LulzBot Mini printer. Try out Snapcircuts and MakeyMakey and practice coding on Kids That Code!

CREATEspace will be setup every Sunday in March. 3D printing is a slow process so get a jumpstart on the queue by checking out designs on Thingiverse. We also have a huge selection of books about makerspaces and 3D printing if you'd like to read up on them instead. 

Check out the videos on the LulzBot printer and MakeyMakey below. 

Hope to see you at CREATEspace!
