Event description


Dimension uPrint


The Artisan's Asylum Stratasys uPrint SE Plus 3D printer can print arbitrarily shaped ABS plastic parts up to 8"x8"x6" automatically on a bed of support material that dissolves away. This class will train students on how to use the 3D printer safely and effectively, running through using the 3D model compiler, printing parts, changing materials in and out of the material loading bays, running finished parts through the dissolving bath, and properly disposing of all materials after the print.

This class does not provide training in 3D modeling software required to generate the STL type of file the 3D printer uses. Check out upcoming available training in 3D Modeling on this classes page.
