3D Library Printing Event



rado hills with more what you got there hi guys check out my hand check out my lovely hand no this is this is how crazy technology has gotten because this is made with a 3d printer and Greg is joining me here this morning to talk about that because it looks great but their hours involved in this right takes about 16 hours to put one of those together and it in printing time and then maybe a couple hours to assemble it it doesn't take much we spend the materials about 42 dollars something like that and this is by the way something that's used to in medical ways right for for kids we have actually pictures I want to show you guys right over here right cried violet viola has no fingers of thumb in her left hand but this replaces that so for very in it a little bit of money we can put our hand on the kid that's part of our enable organization on the pointer this is so cool I I'm really I'm learning this with you guys there at home and in the studio because this technology just doesn't make any sense to me this is unreal they're actually building houses out of this right yes there's there's a couple of companies that build up some in place they just stack it like a like a like a like we do here and other ones build the components and then assemble them on-site well guys I want to show you two how how it actually starts Greg if you can show me cuz I know you showed me a little bit something that they made me which I'm really excited this is this is so cool um but tell me how does it get to this process so what happens is we get a file we convert it into software and basically that software sent to the printer and then the printer is basically laying plastic on top of other plastic like this little base is doing here okay so so basically it's laying a little layer of plastic on top of another layer on top of another layer and that base is gonna wind up looking something like this it melts that it comes off at the spool it goes through this it heats it up melts it and while it's melting it it moves the the bed around and ultimately it completes once it gets to the top it's done and people can actually come here to the library and get some of these things printed out for free for free if you have a library card you can come in here you get four hours of free printing per library card per month you can add cards together if it's a bigger file and we will print for you oh and you guys are actually gonna show me a thing or two so because it goes into this computer right over here but it starts with the scanning and I I want to I want to kind of I want to have my own little statue I don't have any of those yet I've been begging for one but you know what I want to do one just like this just like that but yeah we can now we can make a statue of you okay definitely not the bump but this is where I stand right this is where I would have to stand yep yep just stand on here at rotates you around and while that's rotating this little scanner is making pictures of you and it's scanning infrared dots on you so it knows you know what the shape is right and when it's all done it goes into this into the software and we create a file out of it a three-dimensional file and then we can print that file and get a little statute wonderful well these guys are actually volunteers over here and we have two campers that are actually here learning how to build this 3d printer bill camp this is number four we we bring in anybody who wants to build a printer the printers are very inexpensive they pay some money to the library we provide the training in the space and we ensure that they have a printer that works it's calibrated they know how to use it they know how to how to saw all the software works and we do that so this this is over the next three days that's we'll be doing all right well perfect well guys I'm gonna step on this I'm gonna get scanned and I'm gonna have a good time here but I will see you guys and break something Sabrina Silva's 3d in today getting a staff getting the statute
