The Toronto Public Library will offer an Intro to 3D Design course through their new Digital Innovation Hub this Saturday. The Digital Innovation Hub is home to 3D printers, 3D scanners, Arduino, and Raspberry Pi – among other technology and is set to open February 4th.
Hubs like the one at the Toronto Library are incredible resources and opportunities for people who would like to learn more about 3D design, 3D technology and even give 3D printing a try. All without having to invest a lot of time and money.
The Toronto Star reported “the hubs are part of the Toronto Public Library’s strategic plan, as the traditional houses for books and literature try to reposition themselves in an increasingly digital environment.” Reference library manger Paul Trumphour views libraries as “helping people understand their world” which, increasingly includes the digital world. The technology in the library’s hub cost around $44,000 Canadian dollars and was partially paid for through public fund raising.
Library patrons will be able to use the 3D printers for a small fee of around 5 cents per minute for the first two hours plus a $1 base fee.
