Join the Vail Public Library as we partner with local business, LGM 3D Printing and Modeling Services, to launch the library’s new Makerspace initiative with an Introduction to 3D Printing.

What is Makerspace? Makerspace is a place for creation, collaboration and innovation; it is a place for you to get hands-on experience in a variety of projects. It is a place where people with shared interests can come toghether.

On Thurs., Jan. 09 at 5:30 p.m. this new Makerspace initiative will kick off with a Makerspace to showcase 3D printing. This hour-long introduction to 3D printing, presented by LGM’s CEO Charles Overy, will answer common questions such as: What is 3D printing? How does it work? And, how can I get involved? Charles will explore the process and technology of 3D printing and you will get to see a printer in action.

3D printing is a process in which solid objects are created from a 3D digital design. 3D printing has a wide range of uses and users can create anything from jewelry and toys to architectural models.

With this new initiative, we hope to make this revolutionary product available to the general public through the library’s Makerspace 3D printing lab. The Vail Public Library is also seeking young adults interested in volunteering their time as “coaches” for our new lab and being part of the 3D printer lab team. Please contact Liz Willhoff, at lwillhoff@vailgov.com or call 970-479-2190, if you are interested.
