Design a 3D Snowflake Ornament @ Creation Station
Dec 2 @ 5:00 pm – 6:00 pm

They say each snowflake is unique and that no two snowflakes are alike. While that may be true when snowflakes are truly made of frozen water, it may not be the case when it comes to printing snowflakes on the Library’s new 3D printer… it all depends on your imagination and creativity! Patrons are invited to join us in the Tech Center on Monday, December 2 at 5 pm for this fun holiday project. First you’ll design your snowflake ornament in Tinkercad, a free 3D designing program. Then, since 3D printing is not as speedy as an inkjet, we’ll print the files on the 3D printer for you and call you when they’re ready to be picked up. Registration is required, and the program is limited to the first 16 registrants. Sign up at bit.ly/3Dflake. Call 577-7323 for more information.
