Library Introduces Replicator Mini
Thanks to a generous donation, we are pleased to announce the latest addition to our MakerLab, the MakerBot Replicator Mini 3D Printer. Smaller than the Library's Replicator 2X, the Mini is designed for speed and ease of use. It requires minimal setup to operate, connects to the Library's wireless network, and comes equipped with a built-in camera providing a real-time video stream so print jobs can be monitored remotely. The Mini uses environementally-friendly PLA filament and the Library offers a choice of ten different colors, including: natural, orange, black, cool gray, white, true green, warm gray, and purple.
In addition to this most recent gift from a generous donor, the Library was awarded a grant from the New Canaan Community Foundation in May 2014, and plans to further expand its MakerLab with new furniture, a fifth generation MakerBot Replicator 3D printer, programmable hardware, workshops, and classes.
