3D printing is a form of rapid prototyping technology, capable of rendering digital 3D models and scans in our physical environment. This 2 hour training session will teach students how to effectively use our in-house LulzBot Taz 6 and Flashforge Creator 3D printers. Participants will learn how to prepare models for printing using MakerBot Desktop and Cura slicing software, and learn how specific settings affect the printing process. We will also cover printer calibration, filament loading/unloading, safety precautions, and the tools and steps required for daily care of the machines.
