Pop-Up Lab Offers 3D Printing Access To Library Patrons
The Innovation Lab at the Chicago Public Library will be free for all and will run for six months.
Visitors of the Chicago Public Library will have a chance to get a close-up look at 3D printing technology and even try it out for themselves very soon.
The library has announced that it will be opening a CPL Innovation Lab at the third floor of its centrally-located branch, the Howard Washington Library Center. The innovation lab serves as a venue for the library to experiment with new technologies and ideas and bring those innovations to the public.
The lab’s first project is the Maker Lab, a pop-up fabrication lab that will provide the public with free access to 3D printers, laser cutters, a vinyl cutter, a milling machine, and more.
