Making it 3D

Description

Having worked at libraries with 3D printing and now the proud owner of two 3D printers personally, Lorisia will talk about how to learn how to 3D print and design from her own experiences. Spoiler: it is probably not as expensive or difficult to do as you think! Lorisia will talk about how she learned to 3D design through creating OER Cree files as a case study and will include inspirations/ways that libraries could use 3D printing as well as recommended places to find support.
