Tech to Lend: Wired

Interested in the equipment SWON has available to loan out, but wanting more than an (online) manual? Invite Cassondra out to your location, and she'll set up the equipment and give an introductory talk and demonstration for the individual or group of your choice. Read on for more details.

3D printer

Invite Cassondra out, and she'll set up the 3D printer with you. She'll guide you through the step-by-step setup instructions in the manual and help familiarize you to with their functions. Then she'll help you load a shape file and print your first object!

Setting up the 3D printer isn't terribly complicated, but a walkthrough is a nice confidence-booster the first time you see the 3D printer's nozzle heat up to nearly 300º Celsius. If you have a shape file (or files) already chosen to print, we can get right to work on your project. After the talk, you get to keep the 3D printer for two weeks.

Adding Cassondra to this equipment rental adds $50 (or mileage, whichever is greater) to the total cost. We 100% guarantee this training. Click here if you would like this option.

Makey Makey

Invite Cassondra out, and she'll wire up the Makey Makey and demonstrate it for you. She'll talk you through its setup, as well, so that you'll be ready to continue experimenting with it after he leaves. 

Dreaming up a way to use the Makey Makey and assembling your setup is a big part of the fun. There are lots of projects you can read about online to get you thinking. Reuse or adapt someone else's ideas, or develop your own from scratch. Cassondra will help you think through the application you have in mind. After the talk, you get to keep the Makey Makey for two weeks.

E-Readers

Cassondra's talk about E-Readers includes useful basics about e-ink and tablet technology, ebook formats, and the process of loading ebooks onto the various types of e-readers. It's a helpful overview because the different devices and ebook platforms operate very differently. She’ll also discuss current ebook and e-reader trends.

Cassondra has given this introduction to library staff many times, since it's often front-line staff who get tech support questions from frustrated patrons. After the talk, you'll keep the E-Readers for two weeks of hands-on experience.

Cameo Silhouette 2D cutter

The Silhouette is a great design tool. Get familiar with its design software, physical setup and materials with an introduction from Cassondra. She'll set up the Silhouette and show you how to create and print a new design. This can be as simple as typing in some text (the Silhouette uses the fonts installed on your computer) or tracing shapes out of a photograph (this takes some practice). Whether cutting paper, vinyl stickers or stencils, you'll be ready to forge ahead after this intro.
