Майже рік в Американській бібліотеці імені Віктора Китастого успішно функціонує креативний простір MakerSpace, обладнаний принтером для тривимірного друку, де вже пройшли кілька майстер-класів з його використання. Учасники дізналися про принципи роботи механізму і побачити, як формуються вироби.
Для принтера підходять лише певні види пластику, а сам він потребує постійного налаштування та догляду, тож раді повідомити Вам, що надійним партнером Наукової бібліотеки НаУКМА щодо забезпечення безперебійної роботи 3D принтера, стала компанія 3DDevice, яка постачає різні види філаментів, а також надає послуги з моделювання, проектування, сканування та 3Д друку.
