3D printing, known as rapid-prototyping, is now being taken up by a diverse set of disciplines and communities, from open source do-it-yourself groups to university and industry researchers in engineering, health sciences, architecture and the creative arts. Most recently, open-source communities have collaborated to produce inexpensive build-it-yourself desktop printers such as the Makerbot (http://www.makerbot.com), making this technology easily accessible to everyone. Workshop participants will consider the implications of these new technologies for librarians, educators, researchers and practitioners through discussion, and a hands-on workshop introducing them to 3D printing using the Makerbot. Equipment and material will be supplied.
