Chris Lau’s 1,000th 3-D Print

Tons of people have tried out the Westport Library’s 3-D printer.

Some have made several prints. A few have gotten into the hundreds.

Last night, Chris Lau reached 1,000.

Staff members hosted a small celebration in the MakerSpace. The library’s Transformation Project has forced its relocation to the upper level balcony, from the Great Hall. But that did not stop Chris.

For a year, he’s printed small pieces on the MakerBot. His 1,000th piece was a bright green sneaker.

Alex Giannini — the library’s manager of experiential learning — encourages everyone to try to chase Chris’ record. To schedule a training session, email
