A couple months ago we posted about the Fayetteville Free Library in New York setting some ground rules for how a MakerBot could best be incorporated into a public library.
It looks like another library has picked up the torch! The Killam Library at Dalhousie University in Nova Scotia, Canada, has an excellent resource page explaining The Replicator and how people on campus can use it. This library appears to be running a bit of a printing shop for the cost of $1/hour.
Students can submit .stl files through email or into a shared file space and go pick up the final products later. Nice!
Given the school’s focus on marine research, let’s hope there’s a big jump in the number of related tools on Thingiverse. Have they heard about Project Shellter?!
