3D друк в Американській бібліотеці

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.

Book Choice - Happiness

January is termed as the most depressing and stressful month. For the entire month of December, there’s been lights, music, fun, presents and parties so it is not surprising that once the decorations come down, you come down too. This, combined with the tired, crappy feeling you have after weeks of overindulgence, makes for a bad start to the year. That is why we decided to bring out our favourite stories about happiness, love and friendship. We hope our recommendations will help you on your journey to fulfillment and happiness =)
