On Saturday 6 December, Explore Acomb Library will be hosting two 3D Printing events.
During these three-hour events, experts will train learners in 3D design using the latest technology, and each learner will be given the opportunity to print their design to take home with them – this could include 3D jewellery, ornaments, model trains, toys, utensils and much more.
And as the events occur in early December, this could be the perfect opportunity to design and create a unique Christmas gift for that special someone.
Customers have a choice of a morning or afternoon session:
Saturday 6 December, 9.30am – 12.30pm
Saturday 6 December, 13.30pm – 16.30pm.
Spaces are limited, so booking is essential. Please call Explore Acomb Library on 01904 552651 to reserve a place. Tickets are priced at £30 per person which includes design training, model creation and refreshments. The events are open to all ages.
3D Printing creates three-dimensional models using design software and a 3D printer. The technology has already made many impressive breakthroughs across the world, including contributing to the creation of automotive parts, space exploration technology and even life-saving artificial body parts. With these exclusive events at Explore Acomb Library, the people of York will get a chance to experience this fascinating process by creating unique models to enhance their hobbies and interests.
Fiona Williams, Chief Executive of Explore York Libraries and Archives Mutual Ltd, comments: “These events will allow anyone to come and try this exciting new technology, even if they’ve never seen a 3D printer in action before. We can’t wait to see how people engage with the technology in creative and innovative ways.”
