The world of 3D printing is rapidly expanding into both the home and the school, with 3D printers soon to become a commonplace item on the workbench and in the classroom. This one-day course introduces interested individuals to the world of 3D printing through hands-on experience and discussion.
At the end of this course you will be empowered to use 3D printing on an ongoing basis, whether at home or in front of a classroom. Below is a short outline of what will be covered in this workshop:
- Discussion on the history of 3D printing, how 3D printing is being used today, and where 3D printing is expected to take us into the future
- Presentation on the design process and how 3D printers are used as a part of that process
- Walk-through of available 3D modeling software that can be used for both personal use and in the classroom, much of which can be used for free or by those with a minimal budget
- Description of the basic components of a 3D printer and printing materials
- Hands-on lessons regarding 3D printing, troubleshooting, and maintaining a 3D printer on an ongoing basis
- Introduction resources to teaching materials and classroom applications
