The Cranston Public Library system is always trying to find new ways to stay ahead of the curve and recently announced it acquired a Makerbot Replicator 2X early this spring.
"We want to make this technology available to the public. 3D printing will revolutionize how products are designed and sold. The common person with a small amount of training will now be able to design and produce every day three dimensional objects. Its the library's mission to provide an opportunity for the public to learn about new technologies", said Library Director Edward Garcia.
The Intro to 3D Printing program will be held at the Central Library on Saturday, September 28 from 10am-1pm. The library is located on 140 Sockanosset Cross Road. The program is FREE, space is limited and registration is required. During the program all attendees will be able to print a 3D design provided by the instructor, to accommodate this there are only 8 spots available for this program.
The instructor will be James Rutter, the director of AS220 Labs, a makerspace located in Providence. To register please call 401-943-9080 ext. 6
"This is only the first of a series of 3D printing programs that the library will be offering. We are working on a regular schedule of training programs in the near future", Garcia said.
