Tool Training: 3D Printer 2013
Somerville, United States
The Artisan's Asylum Stratasys uPrint SE Plus 3D printer can print arbitrarily shaped ABS plastic parts up to 8"x8"x6" automatically on a bed of support material that dissolves away. This class will train students on how to use the 3D printer safely and effectively, running through using the 3D model compiler, printing parts, changing materials in and out of the material loading bays, running finished parts through the dissolving bath, and properly disposing of all materials after the print.
This class does not provide training in 3D modeling software required to generate the STL type of file the 3D printer uses. Training is next available in the Introduction to 3D Modeling class.
Students who take the class will be allowed to use the printer unsupervised with an Artisan's Asylum membership.
The goal of this class is to train students for operating the uPrint SE Plus 3D printer indepdently as members.
None. Artisan's Asylum membership is required to make use of the 3D printer after class.
What to Bring:
Something with which to take notes.
All sessions are on Sundays, from 4PM to 6PM.
