Maker Monday: Design 3D-Printable Objects on July 11 may be full, but as always, there are plenty of helpful links online to continue what we learned in What is 3D Printing?

The first thing we’re doing is designing original objects in the free online program Tinkercad. Just sign up for an account, and the website itself will walk you through a tutorial (complete with stars every time you complete something!) If you’d like video help as well, just watch the Lynda.com video on Tinkercad for free with your Westlake Porter Public Library card.

And, of course, if you don't know much about anime, but are interested in it, why not give one of the titles on this list a try?
