Introduction to 3D Printing

3D printing has become commonplace at work and at home in recent years. With the advent of low cost printers, the novice can get started for just a couple of hundred dollars. Open source or free software has allowed the ability to design objects quickly and cheaply. Prebuilt designs for everyday use objects are available for free download on shared interest websites.

This primer webinar will introduce you to the basics of how to get started with 3D printing. We will cover topics including the different parts of a 3D printing setup (software, hardware, supplies) and share our experiences in using 3D printers for daily projects and personal interest activities. Attendees do not have to have any prior experience with 3D printing. There will be a Q&A session as well as live demos (what can go wrong!?).

Register for the webinar here.
