Casuarina, Nightcliff and the Darwin City Libraries have 3D printers available for people to learn about, and print, 3D items.
Casuarina Library has a sewing machine, an overlocker, dressmaker's dummies and sewing supplies for you to use in the library. Bring your own project to work on and materials that you need.
Library staff can assist you with the basic use of the machines, but some experience, or a willingness to learn as you go, is required.
