OSWEGO – Erin Lohnas will continue holding workshops on using 3D printers this month at the Oswego Library.
These workshops will cover the usage of Cura (the program used to interface with the Lulzbot Mini printer) as well as examples of the different ways that 3D printing technology is being utilized in different fields of study and development (construction, medicine, etc.) using some videos on YouTube.
Patrons will be able to see the 3D Printer create something and the process that it goes through to create plastic models, as well as ask questions about the technology during the workshops.
The 3D Printer workshops will be available this month on August 16 from 2 to 4 p.m. and on August 29 from 2 to 4 p.m. and 5 to 7 p.m.
