3d printing is well on the way to constructing full size buildings. Would be
a nice thing to point out to kids who come to a MakerSpace group.
Search on "3d printing buildings" or "construction" or similar to find lots
of material, including videos of the process, and pictures of prototypes.

Hi all:


As they say, watch what you wish for or you just  might get it! In my case,
I submitted a proposal on behalf of PLD for a annual conference session on
maker spaces (see description below). With a nameless person's assurance
that that we could backfill a speaker if the proposal was accepted, I gamely
marched forward without a speaker(s) in place. It was a heck of a lot easier
to leave that detail until the future. Well, the future is upon me, the
proposal was accepted, and I write to you, dear reader, for you help in
locating said mysterious speaker(s). Help me!


I am looking for someone or two who has real world experience setting up and
implementing  a maker space in a library. Do we have such a situation in
Oregon? That is what I am not sure of. 


Any lead you can give me, I will be happy to track down. I have until
November 15 to locate an enlightened soul or two and convince them to do my


In all seriousness, thank you for any help you can provide!


Thanks, Mo


Description of session: Everyone is talking about maker spaces but what
makes a successful maker space? How do libraries know what tools and
materials to purchase? What are the problems libraries have encountered?
Hear from libraries who have implemented maker spaces and learn about what
works, what doesn't work, and how to avoid expensive and time consuming
pitfalls in the new and exciting area of maker spaces.
