Intro to 3D Printing – This Friday

Makers,

Intro to 3D Printing is for anyone that has zero to little experience with 3D Printing.  We will provide an overview of 3D printers and the printing process – covering everything from the way 3D printers are built through the ways we use them to create objects. In this beginner level class, we will discuss different methods of 3D printing and cover the fundamental steps for designing and printing models. Participants will get to know how the MakerSpace’s printers – the LulzBot Taz 6 and Lulzbot Mini – work, and how to use them safely. Following the workshop, participants will have the opportunity to sign-up for certification sessions on these machines, so that they can use them on their own at the CMS.

Intro to 3D Printing is this Friday, February 21st from 6:30 – 8:30 PM, please register here.
