3D Printer Build Workshop

  • Jun 29, 2013 · 10:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members


We'll be using the brand new Printrbot Simple kit. It's a great kit, and most people so far have been able to build it within a single day. The print quality is very good for such a simple and portable printer. With a build area of 3.5" square it is perfect for most small jobs and is great for learning how to design and print 3D objects yourself.

We have managed to secure a special supply of the previously sold-out Beta edition of the kit. Only the first six people to sign up will be able to participate in our class! Better yet, we will be passing on the Beta stage cost savings to our first participants. The class will cost $450, which includes:

* Complete Printrbot Simple kit and everything you need to start 3D printing (host computer not included).
* A whole day of expert hands-on instruction from our team of 3D Printing experts
* Use of all the tools you will need for the build process, and access to our hackerspace for the day
* Assistance with initial calibration and possible upgrades.

We will also offer Hack Manhattan members a $50 discount off the class price (discount refunded at the class).

    I woke up "the morning after" and thought to myself, "Omigod, I built a 3D printer yesterday!" Thanks for a great class.

    Wow wow wow. I had a great time. Matthew and David are great teachers. They are very very very very knowledgeable. I would like to take a followup class in 3D Printer fine tuning.

      Thank you so much for the praise. Dave and I were thinking the same thing since building a 3D printer and tuning one are two very different things. I hope to see you soon.

    Hi David,
    My friend is interested in this event. However, it's full. Can he come over, and just see how we make the printers?

      Hi Nicky, sure your friend is welcome. Probably best not to bring a whole group though, so that we all have room to move around!

    Hello David, referencing Shelley's post, just want to confirm it is OK to bring my daughter and to work together. No worries on the waiver. Thank you.

    • David R.

      Yes, you are very welcome to bring your daughter. Looking forward to meeting everyone on Saturday!

    Hi, I was thinking of bringing my niece, who is a high school sophopmore, very smart, and interested in architecture and design. First question: is this workshop appropriate for people of that age?
    Second: Can she and I attend together, but only build one Printrbot?
    Thank you.

      Hi Shelly, yes, the Printrbot Simple has been reportedly built by youngsters with parental supervision. We've accommodated such pairs in previous classes, and you're very welcome to attend with your niece. We do ask that you sign a standard Maker liability waiver for yourself and guests who do any work in the space, but the kit itself does not require any soldering or cutting of parts.

    You've reeled me in!
