The star of new printing methods, of course, is the MakerBot 3D printer. Any community member can create a design using the free design program SketchUp and then watch it become a solid object using the printer. The library has since been able to acquire a second printer to serve as a backup.
The Sunnyvale library has offered several classes on how to design using SketchUp: two classes called “Think it, Design it, Make it” and two classes called “Art to Part: Bringing Invention to Life.” More than 270 people attended the first class and about 100 signed up for the others. More are planned.
