About: Durham County Library will host a Maker Day from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Saturday, September 27 at the Main Library, 300 N. Roxboro St. Participants will be able to learn about 3D printing and can design an object to print.

3D printing, also known as additive manufacturing, is a process of making three dimensional solid objects from a digital file. The creation of a 3D printed object is achieved by laying down successive layers of material until the entire object is complete. Program participants can watch the library’s MakerBot 3D printer in action, as well as design an object and print it. Printing will be done on a first-come, first-served basis, and most objects will be printed after the event. Pricing for printed objects is based on weight.
