A row of printers sits in the front of the Pierce County Library’s Gig Harbor branch. But it’s not making typical copies. A pair of plastic owls, a box and Abraham Lincoln’s face are just a few of the things that have been printed there.
The four 3-D printers are a gift from Afina 3-D Printers, SpaceClaim and Friends of the Gig Harbor Library.
The library branch will host events this spring to show the public the opportunities available with 3-D printing.
Demonstrations will be held:
• 4 p.m. March 5
• 5 p.m. March 12
• 6:30 p.m. March 19
• 6:30 p.m. April 9
• 2 p.m. April 29
The demonstrations will discuss the different types of 3-D printing, the history of it, and a demonstration of the printers in action.
Beginning in June, the library will offer hands-on classes.Reporter Karen Miller can be reached at 253-358-4155 or by email at karen.miller@ gateline.com. Follow her on Twitter, @gateway_karen.
