Have you ever wondered about 3D printing? Do you know what “slicing software” is, or what to use supports for? If you are interested in learning more about 3D printing or thinking about getting a desktop 3D printer for your school, library or business, this course is for you! Join us for an introduction to 3D printing, an overview of software used for 3D printing, and a hands-on look of how 3D printers actually “work.” Troubleshooting (and preventing!) some common issues will also be discussed.  After you take this course, you should have a basic knowledge of 3D printing hardware, materials and software. We will be working with several 3D printer brands and models; the course material covered applies to most popular 3D printer brands.  Each attendee will 3D print and take home a part!

3D Printing 201: Beyond the Basics

July 21st

  • Taught by:  TEC Staff/Technicians

• Bring your own laptop loaded with Ultimaker Cura (download for free).

From exporting and importing STLs, to slicing software and material, there are many factors to consider when 3D printing, and you need to think of them all for successful prints! If you have had some 3D printing exposure and are ready to expand your comfort zone, this course is for you! Join us to learn current industrial trends for designing a part for 3D printing, the powerful tools found in slicing software from pre-set material profiles to in-depth printer settings, what materials you should use for what and why, how certain 3D printer features affect usability and printability, plus extra “tid-bits” to help you make successful 3D prints! Troubleshooting some common issues will also be discussed.  We will be working with several 3D printer brands and models; the course material covered applies to most popular 3D printer brands.  Each attendee will 3D print and take home a part(s)!
