From Imagination to Reality: Getting Started with 3D Printing

May 13 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm


This intro to 3D printing is a jump start to rapid prototyping and plastic fabrication.Our instructor will go through a step by step process to give you the ins and outs of the machine, how it works, how to prepare 3D models for printing, and how you can achieve the best results of bringing designs to real life! Possibilities are endless once you have the foundation to create a 3D design. The future is now!

Class Goals : By the end of the workshop students will be confident in their newly obtained skills to create 3D designs . Students will know how to set up and maintain a 3D printer , design for manufacturing , and how to prepare files for 3D printing.

Duration : 3 Hours

6:00pm – 9:00pm on weekdays

Maximum Participants: 4
