• Maker Monday

    Route 9 Library and Innovation Center

    DIY projects can be social! Bring whatever project you are working on, and bounce ideas around with fellow makers. Generally we have electronics, fiber art, programming, and 3D design projects going. Or, you can just come to meet the community and check out the new equipment at the Route 9 library! In order to use equipment in the Lab, such as the 3D printers or Laser Cutter/Engraver, you will need to attend an Orientation and classes on each piece of equipment.

  • Certification: LASER. How to Set up a File and Cut it!

After the class, you can schedule an appointment with Rt. 9 staff to demonstrate ability and gain unsupervised access to the laser and earn your purple pin. If you'd like to bring your own laptop, make sure you download Inkscape and Legacy RetinaEngrave 3D (RE v1.0). NOTE: You must have basic "mouse skills" to attend this class, such as being able to hold shift and click on several objects to select them all at once.
