Upcoming Events:

3D Print your Minecraft Creations

Computers and Tech
4:15 pm - 5:15 pm

Come see a 3D printer in action and learn how to turn what you build in Minecraft into a printable model. We'll talk a little about 3D printing, and then we'll jump into Minecraft. Using a free program called Mineways, we'll take whatever you make in Minecraft, turn it into a 3D model, and print it out. Please note: 3D printing takes awhile, so we won't be able to print your models the same day - you'll be able to pick them up at the library in a week or so. For grades 4 and up! Registration is required. Please call 720-865-0325 X 2 or email asksamgarylibrary@denverlibrary.org to register.
