3D Systems’ MakerLab Club wants to offer free access to 3D printers, scanners and software to teenagers and local communities national wide.
The US manufacturer is collaborating with the Young Adult Library Service Association (YALSA) to expand the access of 3D printing technology. Libraries and museums qualified for the program can register with 3D Systems until November 17, 2014 in order to receive free equipment. If selected they will receive 2-4 Cube 3D printers, access to regular workshop curricula and content, online trainings as well as discounts for equipment.
MakerLab Club is open to museums and libraries of all budgets and sizes, however, members must show they are dedicated to advancing “making” through continuous programming and development.
