Intro to 3D Printing...

Fancy doing some 3D printing?

Have a project you need to get printed?

Just curious and want top know what the heck it's all about?


Well come along, chill out with us and learn the mechanics of using the world famous UP! 3D printer and afterwards you'll be able to use them whenever you like!

We'll cover general things like:

Getting [nice] models for free! [or even nicer paid ones]

Where to start with CAD files. Some free software we recommend and use.

How to cleanup a mesh and import into the UP! Software ready for printing

Materials and types of 3D printers [there are many non-plastic printers available too!]

Common faults and remedies


and specific pointers:

Calibrating/Setting the printer for printing

What to check so you don't make expensive birds nests!

Little tricks for great prints

Machine checks - maintenance pointers


Please note - This is a workshop for learning how to setup the machine and general printing - not a 'get a print done on the night' -  3D printing is a pretty long process and we just won't get time :)

Of course the printers will be running tho' as a demonstration :)

________________________________________________________________

Bring a PC-based [or windows emulated MAC] laptop and we'll give you a copy of the UP! software to cost your printing ;)

Payment:

Cost: $40.

To absolutely guarantee your place for the workshop, please RSVP by depositing payment via Paypal and we'll need a minimum of 7 RSVP's to proceed.
