More than a year ago, the Cline Library at Northern Arizona University opened the MakerLab, home to 20 donated MakerBot 3-D printers available for use by NAU students, faculty and staff as well as the Flagstaff community. Since then, people have created thousands of objects, including faculty and students in art, engineering and astronomy.
The lab includes tabletop 3-D scanners and a toolkit so people can finish their creations.
“The response has been amazing,” said Bryan Johnson, a library technology specialist who works with the MakerLab. “We really outpaced ourselves; this has been a runaway success.”
