Episode 50 - Getting started with 3D printing at the library

Ellen and Jessica unpack the Cube 2 printers.
 This winter the Duxbury Free Library received two student tabletop Cube 2 3D printers from a grant sponsored by the American Library Association and 3D Systems Corporation.

In addition, we had budgeted to purchase a high-grade Ultimaker 2 printer.
