TinkerCad 3D Design Class

Due to popular demand, we have created a second TinkerCad 3D Printer Design class on Friday, June 19 from 2:00-4:00. In the class, teens will learn how to create a free TinkerCad account and get started on their own design that will be printed on the 3D Printer when it visits the Kingwood Library the week of July 13!

Libraries are for Making...3D Objects!

The 3D Printer is back! Teen Tech Week will be celebrated at the Maud Marks Library during Spring Break on March 11 at 3 PM. Tweens and Teens are invited to join us as we print 3D objects. Come by and learn how this technology works and see it in action!

Please register by calling the library at 281-492-8592 or signing up online here.

Sneak Preview!

Spoiler Alert! In 82 days we'll be celebrating the 10th anniversary of the opening of  our combined library on the Lone Star College Tomball campus. Today the library staff received training in 3D printing so that when that great day comes, you will be able to watch a demonstration of a 3D object being printed as part of our festivities. Mark your calendars for January 31st, 2015. Grace Lillevig, our trainer, pictured here with a spool of PLA filament and the 3D printer to the left, is the head of HCPL's ebranch and the curator of our 3D printers.

 

3D printers have arrived!

Our Innovation Lab 3D printers have arrived!  Both our MakerBot Replicator 2 and local company re:3D's printer, the Gigabot, both arrived recently, and we couldn't be more excited!  Each day we move ever closer to the Innovation Lab, where the public will be able to use and learn about creative technologies such as 3D printing.  We are eager for everyone to have access to this equipment and all it can do, but we ask for your patience as we try both to learn about these devices ourselves in order to help you learn as well and to finish construction on their permanent home in the Innovation Lab upstairs.  We hope for construction to begin very soon, so stay tuned!

3D Printer has arrived!

We are pleased to welcome a new addition to Freeman Branch Library!  Our first 3D printer, the MakerBot Replicator 2, arrived yesterday.  This is one of the first big steps that gets us a little closer to the Innovation Lab, a place where everyone can come and create with fun and exciting technology such as this.  We look forward to providing you with more updates on our progress with the lab and all of its components over the next several months.  Stay tuned for more as we move forward into the future at Freeman!
