3D Printers


20180709 3Dprinters imageWe have two 3D printers, one each at our Waipawa and Waipukurau Libraries.

3D print technology empowers our community with the capacity to design, customise and build their own goods.

We will be offering project-based learning workshops, where you can get involved in the process of concept to finished object, pulling a creation from the virtual world and turning it into a physical object. All while gaining first-hand STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) experience. 

In the future we aim to offer classes in 3D design and software familiarisation.

  • Our UP Box printers have a fully enclosed print area, which is especially important when children are about. The printers have a HEPA air filtration system to keep our users from being exposed to any ultra-fine particles that can be emitted whilst printing. They are also supplied, serviced and supported by a New Zealand based company.
