Event Details

Have you been wondering what this 3-D printing excitement is all about?  

Spend an afternoon at Deezmaker Hackerspace in Pasadena, makers of the Bukobot and Bukito 3-D printer. You will learn how to download and use the relevant free open source software you need to use an Reprap (or similar) 3-D printer.   

Open-source 3D printing requires use of two programs: a 3-D modeling program to lay out the desired model, and a program to convert that design into the commands for the printer (which runs on “G-code”).

The class will be taught by Diego Porqueras, creator of the Bukobot and President of Deezmaker, and other Deezmaker staff.  The class will cover a quick history of 3-D printing, types of 3-D printing and its relationship to the open source movement; basics of OpenSCAD and TinkerCAD free 3-D modeling software, and how "Slicing" works as a G-code generator. By the end, participants will make something cool in plastic with our 3-D printers!

The class will run from 1 PM to 6 PM on Saturday August 23rd at the Deezmaker Store and Hackerspace in Pasadena, 290 N. Hill Ave.

Each participant must bring their own laptop computer (Mac, Windows, Linux).

Participants will be sent a list of open-source free software to download ahead of time to make the most efficient use of class time. The class will focus on the specific settings for a Bukobot, but the material applies broadly to all RepRap style open source based printers.
