Event Details

You heard right!! Make a tiny replica of yourself in 3-D Imaging for Narcissists aka
3-D Scanning and Printing with the Makerbot Replicator. Colin will teach the Makerbot part, and Hackett will teach the self-scanning section beforehand. More details to come.
 
This process has been getting alot of hype recently, on NPR, the huffington post tons of blogs, and most recently here, which is specifically about this class and this teacher:

The opposite of cutting, milling, or lathe work, 3D printers draw from nothing to something to create a solid 3-dimensional object. Think hot glue gun attached to a robot who can push left/right(X), forward/back(Y) and up/down(Z). It's really that simple.

We will be printing with ABS filament--the same material LEGOs are made of.  We will provide all the filament we will need for the class,  give-away prints and goodies to take home. Bring your laptop if you can, if not you can use the shop's. You will get hands on personal time with a Replicator to print whatever yopu want.

 
If you know how to design in CAD or other 3D design software, feel free to bring you files along and get them printed.  ***If you do not have any 3D design skills that is okay*** There is an online library of over 30,000 digital files for download. For free. Look at www.Thingiverse.com.  It's a community of people based around sharing their ideas and designs. We can just download a file and get it printing.
 

$60 class fee ($30 for members) plus $5 materials fee - registration open until noon on the day before the class

Dress for the weather. The shop is as cold as is it outside or as hot. This is a working shop so prepare to get dirty.
