About this event

3D Printing 101

In this orientation, you will learn how 3D printers work and how to set-up and run the 3D printer.

You will learn the basics of 3D printing technologies and ways of using them creatively, and you will become familiar with MakerLabs' resources available for member and drop-in use. This orientation is ideal for artists, artisans, designers, architects, engineers, product developers, industrial designers, and anyone else looking to gain an understanding of additive manufacturing, scanning, and rapid prototyping.

Some familiarity with 3D design software is helpful, but not necessary for this course.
