Event description

Description

Description:

Students will learn how to use all of the FDM (Fused Desposition Method) 3D printers at the Artisan's Asylum.

The Flashforge createrPro 3D Printer can print shapes out of PLA up to 9"x6"x5.7" with breakaway supports.

The Lulzbot Taz 5 3D Printer can print in ABS up to 11.7" x 10.8" x 9.8" with breakaway supports.

The markforged 3D printer prints in nylon wit the ability to put carbon fiber into a part. This allows for strong parts to be printed.

This class will train students on how to use the 3D printers safely and effectively. It will show students how to use the 3D model compilers, what simple design tweeks can be done to make better 3D printed parts, how to actually print parts, how to change materials in and out of the printers, how to properly remove support material, and how to properly dispose 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 our classes page.

Students who take the class will be allowed to use the printer unsupervised with an Artisan's Asylum membership. Tool testing is available upon request should a student wish to have futher supervision on their first print, but is not required.
