3D print anything: an introduction to the world of 3D printing

3D print anything: an introduction to the world of 3D printing

This introductory workshop for 3D printing novices will provide a brief history of 3D printing technology and demonstrate how 3D printers work. We will review each step of the printing process and spend some hands-on time preparing a 3D model for printing using the Prusa Slicer software. Participants are encouraged to bring their own laptops, but we will have four workstations available for those who need them. This class is a great first step for anyone new to the world of 3D printing.

This workshop is part of a series previewing the exciting new library spaces at the Markham Campus Library. You can learn more about the new spaces below. Participants in this workshop may also be interested in the other Markham preview workshops: The art of filming professional interviews, From concept to creation: design your first 3D model with Solvespace, Unleash your creative canvas: green screen magic!
