About this class

The popularity and awareness of 3D Printing is exploding. It is breaking down barriers in design and manufacturing, and making what was previously impossible, possible for anyone with just a basic understanding of the technology.

In this class we'll give you that basic understanding by putting some 3D printers into action. And yes, you'll leave the room with your prints, free of charge: everything is included in the training fee. You'll gain exposure to the main facets of 3D Printing including 3D Scanning, 3D Modelling, preparing the file for print, and finally, 3D Printing.

Designers, Engineers, Technologists, Entrepreneurs, Hackers and Hobbyists: this class is suitable for both novices and those more experienced with technology. Anyone with an interest in 3D printing and wants to learn should come along!

Takeaways

  • The Basics: How does a 3D-printer work? What are the different types of printers and materials you can use? What can I print with a 3D-printer? Is it expensive to use a 3D Printer? and other FAQs
  • A working knowledge of 3D Scanning for reverse engineering as well as 3D designing your own simple 3D object from scratch
  • Initialise and set up the 3D Printer with basic settings

Prereqs & Preparation
