3D Printing in Action for Beginners - A hands on Workshop

Want to get hands on with our 3D Printers but have no experience? then this class is for you.

The popularity and awareness of 3D Printing is exploding. It is breaking down barriers in design and manufacturing, and making what was previously impossible, possible for anyone with just a basic understanding of the technology.

In this class we'll give you that basic understanding by putting some 3D printers into action. And yes, you'll leave the room with your prints, free of charge: everything is included in the training fee. You'll gain exposure to the main facets of 3D Printing including 3D Scanning, 3D Modelling, preparing the file for print, and finally, 3D Printing.

Designers, Engineers, Technologists, Entrepreneurs, Hackers and Hobbyists: this class is suitable for both novices and those more experienced with technology. Anyone with an interest in 3D printing and wants to learn should come along!
