A one stop certification for using the fleet of 3D Printrbots.
3D printing is one of a handful of tools in our Digital Fabrication tool belt. It is a perfect tool for rapid prototyping, bespoke digital fabrication, and replacing that board game piece the dog ate that time. 3D printers use additive technology to produce small objects from plastic filament that is melted down and extruded by the printer nozzle. This is a 2 hour long class on how to use our 3D printers. These printers can make forms up to 5×5 inches big, printed out of PLA plastic. You don’t need any previous knowledge to take this class.
In this workshop you will:
- learn how to use intuitive 3D software (TinkerCad) to produce basic 3D objects
- learn the basics of 3D printing and become familiar with 3D Printrbots
- be certified to use our 3D Printrbots (PLA & ABS printers)
- complete a small 3D print of your own (this depends on the size of your print, and you might have to pick it up another day)
1 hour + printing printing time
