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.
