3D Printing Experience

  • Feb 15, 2014 · 1:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Geared towards people new to 3D printing, this session will cover the basics of designing using CAD, printing an object, and 3D scanning.

Watch as a printer constructs a model layer by layer straight from the computer. Get an idea about what it can and can't do, and what this technology could be capable of in the not too distant future.

Have a go at designing your own object from scratch, which we will print for you. Please bear in mind that prints can take a long time, and any we don't get through on the day we will send to you once they are complete.

Scan an object and watch it take form on the screen. The potential of combining scanning, designing and printing is huge!

Recommended group size: 3 to 6 (one 5x5x5cm print each, one scan per group)
