If you can imagine a shape there is a good chance you can create it with the push of a button with 3d printing. Intricate patterns, useful gadgets, and cute tchotchkes are all common in 3d print modeling but your imagination is really the biggest limit. Browse Thingiverse.com to get ideas prior to attending this certification course.
What you’ll learn: In this class attendees will learn how to load files to print, adjust settings in the print manager (CURA), change or replace filament, relevant terminology and operational procedures for the 3d printers.
Please note: This class does not include file preparation or design elements necessary prior to using a 3d printer. Fusion 360 is available on MAKE computers for designing 3d models to be 3d printed but additional research will be required.
