A few weeks ago we asked our library patrons to help us name our brand new 3D printer. Wow! What a great turnout we had – you all offered up some fantastic monikers for this exciting new machine.
Johannes Gutenberg, inventor of the printing press. Gutenberg, who made information accessible to the people, no matter their social status or wealth. It may even be said that the library wouldn’t exist without him. He embodied the mission we carry on today. He changed the world.
Plus, we can call the printer Gute (pronounced GOOT) for short!
Uh, no. But close enough.
We want to acknowledge all the AMAZING suggestions. In no particular order, the other entries:
- The Copycat
- PAM (Printing And Making)
- PAC (Printing And Creating)
- Scotty (As in, Beam Me Up!)
- Philip the Fantastic MakerBot
- Bob the Builder
- Magic Maker
- SusanBot 3.0
- The Cool-Plastic-Thing-Maker-Inator
- Monster Printer
- Fembots from Austin Powers
- Imagination Creator
- Art Bot
- Harry Potter
- The Printinator
- The People Replacer
- D’Amazing Box
You can see that it was no easy choice! But a big congratulations to the winner, Maureen, who’ll have $5 in free printing, beginning April 1.
