CoreFab111: An Introduction to 3D Printing
An Introduction to 3D Printing CoreFab Prereq: None Cost: $35Learn to take any virtual 3D file on the computer and print it into a real world object! 3d printers are the wave of the future for in-home fabrication. This technology will one day render production and distribution obsolete by allowing you to pull from a virtual product database and produce any object within your own home at the click of a button.Part 1 - An Intro to 3D PrintingThis class provides the core overview of all things 3D printing that you will need to operate machines like the Makerbot, Ultimaker, or Printrbot. This comprehensive overview covers everything 3D printing from the different technologies of fabrication under the umbrella of 3D printing, the amazing innovations in fabrication technique that this enables, and the key design constraints inherent to 3D modelling for fabricating physical objects.Part 2 - The Objet 30We will teach you what you need to know to operate the Objet 30 we have at the shop. This commercial 3D printer can produce any part at an incredible 30 micron resolution surface detail (that's 1/30th of a millimeter!). You will get a hands-on introduction to operating the machine and finishing parts hot off the printer.Each student taking this class will have a chance to clean a part from the machine and take home their very own 3D print!
