This 1 hr induction will use a combination of taught demonstration and hands on practice to allow you to gain an understanding of 3D printing.
3D printing is currently at the forefront of advanced prototyping and model making. It allows the user to print parts, models and figures with relative ease, where otherwise this producing the models may have been an expensive and long process.
During this short training course, you will learn the basics, starting by choosing a 3D model from a pre-approved library to work from. You will then be guided through the 3D print process; using the 3D printing software, loading the printer with material and finally printing a model (which you are welcome to come and collect later on). Once this is complete, it will allow you to come and use the 3D printers in the Fablab wherever you need.
We can also offer further 3D printing training to advance your knowledge of the 3D printer if you have particularly complex parts to print or want have further needs beyond the initial training. This would also be covered in our Bespoke Training Package.
