This 1 hour induction uses 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, reducing costs and making time.
During this short training course, you will learn the basics, starting with choosing a 3D model from our pre-approved library. You will then be guided through the 3D print process; using the software, loading the printer with material and finally printing a model. Once inducted, you to come and use the 3D printers in the FabLab whenever you need.
Do I need prior experience of CAD?
No experience is needed.
Do I need to bring anything?
If you have a file you would like to 3D print, then bring it along! But this is not necessary.
I had training but I have forgotten how to use the printers, do I still need to pay for a full induction?
No, we can offer a refresher usually around 30 minutes.
