Illinois MakerLab: 3D Printing Workshop
This workshop is an introduction into the world of 3D printing. In this workshop our Gurus will provide a brief overview of the MakerLab and 3D printing. Different printing methodologies, as well as their benefits and limitations will also be covered during this session. This session will demonstrate how to operate a 3D printer and how to download, prepare, and print digital files from a digital library (Thingiverse). In addition, attendees will receive a brief demonstration about both 3D modeling and 3D scanning. One lucky participant in each class will have the opportunity to receive a free 3D portrait!
