MakerLab Badging: 3D printing and more

Would you like to earn the 3D printer badge? Sign up today and you can learn hands on how to use a 3D printer independently at training sessions offered at the Howell Branch, Fredericksburg Branch, and  Porter Branch.

In this program, library staff will guide you through a step-by-step process to master the primary functions of the machine as well as how to locate, download, and print three-dimensional designs. We also now offer the Sewing Machine badge at the Howell Branch only where library staff will teach you how to operate and use the basic features of the Janome My Style 100 sewing machine.

Earning these badges allows you to reserve the sewing machine at the Howell Branch or the 3D printer to build your own projects in the MakerLab. In exchange for use of the machine in the lab, you agree to also share information about your project with curious customers. To request a badging session, go here and fill out the form at the bottom of the page.
