3D Printing at Make-a-tion
|July 14, 2013||Posted by Jeffrey Putney under Make-a-tion 2013, Workshops||
Our first ever Summer Make-a-tion 3D printing work happened last weekend and we had a wonderful turnout. James and Brian put together a workshop aimed at introducing people of any and all skill levels to our 3D printer.
With no previous knowledge required all participants were able to find 3D models to print online and personally customize them using free and easy to use online resources.
After every group had customized and generated their 3D part we loaded them all up into the 3D printing software and printed them all together in one run.
The Maker Space Urbana Solidoodle 3D printer is free to use and available for people whenever the space is open (check the calendar or join our facebook group for times). Plastic and maintenance for the printer are payed for by a donation jar sitting next to the printer so please contribute if you are able.
Now come print something!
