Prerequisite: 3D Printing 101 or some 3D printing knowledge/experience.
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)!
