The children’s book “LEO the Maker Prince” introduces readers to LEO, a talking robot and 3D printer who can print anything in plastic that his friend Carla draws. Leo’s robot pals also share his love for making 3D objects and can print in metal, or from a catalog of designs.
And here’s where things get really fun. As young readers follow the characters’ adventures through Brooklyn, they themselves learn how to explore their creativity through 3D printing. Design files of all the objects and characters from the book can be downloaded from Thingiverse, including Carla and LEO’s adorable sheep.
