WHO IS THIS COURSE FOR?
This course is aimed at any makers who want to get more out of their 3D printer. If you're new to 3D printing and have just bought a printer, this course will provide an invaluable introduction to the process of preparing a 3D file for print and to your new 3D printer. If you are already somewhat experienced and want to gain a deeper understanding of your machine, the contents of the course will help you become a true master of your machine.
WHY A FULL DAY?
There are two reasons to choose a full day course:
- You want to train a large group. This course is most effective when all participants have a chance to get hand-on work with a printer. This is only possible in a large group with more time. Two back to back half day trainings can be a good choice in this case.
- You need to earn your stripes. If you and your team are relatively new to 3D printing then there's no subsititute for practice. A full day gives you time to embed the lessons of the day.
WHAT DOES THIS COURSE COVER:
This is a hands on course that requires full participation of its attendees. As such, all attendees will need access to a computer. In its basic form, the training will cover the following:
- Preparing your design to print. Not all 3D designs are fit to print. We'll guide you through the process of modifying your design so its fit to print on your machine.
- Learning to use your slicer. Slicing a file for a specific machine is both an art and a science. This vital portion of the course will guide you from model orientation to support application to infill.
- Operating your printer. Each 3D printer has its own unique printing charactaristics and we'll work with you to get the most out of yours. You'll learn levelling, build plate preparation, filament loading and more.
- Maintaining your printer. 3D printers require regular maintenance and attention to keep running at full capacity. We'll give you the basic knowledge of cleaning, unclogging and more to ensure you keep printing.
