Jeffers Learning Resources Center
Welcome to the JLRC's Creation Studio
The addition of the Creation Studio to the vast resources already offered through the JLRC, provides patrons with the newest technologies in creating materials, models, graphics, and more. These cutting-edge tools are available to students, faculty, and local/regional educators.
The Glowforge is a machine that uses laser light to cut, engrave, and shape designs from a variety of materials such as leather, wood, and acrylic. JLRC patrons will have access to create and print their own designs such as wooden signs, acrylic keychains, and leather designs.
The MakerBot Sketch is a comprehensive 3D printer solution designed to accelerate learning and design-thinking. 3D printing uses computer-aided design (CAD) to create three-dimensional objects through a layering method. Teachers can create things like interactive maps, recreate real-life structures, decorations, and much more!
The MakerBot Replicator+ combines unparalleled performance with superior results and lasting reliability. The Replicator+ prints high-quality concept models 30% faster, easier, and with a 25% larger build volume than its predecessor. Teacher can create larger scale models of historical structures, biology figures, math manipulatives and MORE!
The Silhouette CAMEO®Pro 4 is the ultimate DIY machine. It uses a small blade to cut over 100 materials, including paper, cardstock, vinyl, and fabric up to 24 inches wide. JLRC patrons will be able to make things such as greeting cards, iron-on designs for T-shirts, party decorations, temporary tattoos, stickers, magnets, and more!
The button maker creates a graphic or image inside a button template on a piece of paper. The image is placed inside a plastic button case, and a metal backing is added. The metal backing includes holes for a safety pin to be inserted. JLRC patrons will be able to create their own buttons using images that are drawn, painted, or printed!
