3D Printing is changing the world around us. Intro to 3D printing will introduce you to the equipment, software, and workflow for this new and exciting technology.
You'll learn about the software that allows you to develop files to be 3D printed, the workflow for operating a 3D printer, and how to prepare files for successful 3D printing. Each participant will walk away with an understanding of 3D printing technology, related tools and materials. You'll also receive a resource packet that will help you remember what you have learned, and where to find the software and 3D printer options that are best for you.
By the end of the day, each student will have created a ready-to-print file they made themselves (whether from scratch, or by customizing an existing design). Additionally, you'll take away a 3D-printed item to keep.
This class is for anyone curious about 3D printing, makers/inventors, artists, and business owners looking to understand the role 3D printing could play in their business and product development.
