This class is a collaboration between Workshop 88 (June 12th) and Fox.Build (June 26th) and will be held at each workshop on dates noted. Gail Jo Kelly will be the instructor. She has been 3D printing since 2014. The class will be directed towards people that are new to 3D printing. She will explain how 3D printing works, within the context of the 3D printers at the makerspace. There will be printers on hand for demonstration. Information will cover the process of obtaining a file for print, preparing the file in the compatible format for the printer, using the related software interfaces, along with how to load the filament (materials) and features of the 3D printer. To view 3D printable items, take a look at for examples. There is no fee for this class. Only RSVP if you will be able to attend. If your plans change, please update your RSVP to open up the spot again. June 12th @ Workshop 88.
