Introduction to 3D Printing: Hands-on with the Lulzbot

Anyone can learn 3D Printing! Members and non-members are invited to join us as we walk through the pieces of the tool chain that make the Freeside Lulzbot tick. All of the profit for this class will be donated to making improvements to the Freeside Auditorium, so your money will be going toward making Freeside even better!

In this class, I'll take you on a guided tour of the tool chain that powers our Lulzbot. You'll learn how CAD models are turned into machine instructions, and how those instructions are streamed to the printer.

We'll also take a look at configuring Slic3r settings for your print, and some basic troubleshooting and setup tips so that you can ensure that you'll have clean, successful prints... in a reasonable number of attempts :)

This class will probably run over, as I'll be letting some of you drive while we set up a print.

This won't be a review of the history of 3D printing or different model types, or how to get started on building one. We're going to run a 3D printer, and I'll show you how!
