A number of people have visited the Toronto Reference Library (TRL) Digital Innovation Hub this month to print seasonal items such as ornaments for the tree. Many have downloaded and printed items from websites such as Thingiverse and Instructables.

 And this Saturday a boy named Marco, and his mother, came in to print an ornament  which Marco himself had designed using Blender, a free and open source 3D animation suite.  


The final results are very personal creations harnassing some of the latest technologies available right here the the library.

Our 3D printers are available for anyone with a Toronto Public Library card to use, once they have completed a short 3D Certification Course, which outlines the basics of how the hardware and software works.

The courses are offered at TRL and at Fort York Branch. And we even offer a free course, Intro to 3D Design, which will introduce you to the basics of 123D Design, OpenSCAD, and Sculptris so you can start designing your own 3D items.

Why not make your New Years resolution today?
I want to learn how to 3D print!
