This 3 hr workshop will use a combination of taught presentation and hands on practice to allow participants to gain a understanding of 3D printing. 3D printing is currently at the forefront of advanced prototyping and model making. It allows the user to print plastic parts, models and figures with relative ease. During this workshop, you will learn the basics, skipping the modelling stage and invited to choose a 3D model from a pre-approved library. You will then be guided through the 3D print process from point of approval of 3D design, through the process of using 3D print software, loading the printer with material and finally printing a model (which you are welcome to come and collect the next day or when convenient). This workshop will also count as an induction and will allow you to come and use the 3D printers in the Fablab.
