Are you sitting on the sidelines of the 3D printing field, just itching to get into the game? Our workshop takes armchair enthusiasts on a hands-on journey designed to quickly and effectively inaugurate them as makers in the 3D printing world.
There are a few important things to learn (that’s where we come in)—but it’s easier than you think to dive in and start creating. Our morning session presents a sophisticated yet digestible paradigm designed to deepen understanding of the 3D printing space, while the afternoon is spent in two separate lab-style creative sessions. By providing students with both necessary context and technical understanding, we transform them into instant, and confident, creators.
The workshop’s promise. Each participant will walk away with a broad-spectrum understanding of 3D printing technology, related tools and materials, and a greater sense for how they can be practically leveraged for consumer or business use. By the end of the day, each student will have created a ready-to-print file they made themselves (whether from scratch, or by customizing an existing design).
