“How would you print that?” interactive panel

Time: Thursday, Jan. 09, 5:00 PM - 6:00 PM

We have a wealth of different perspectives reflected with our 3D printing room staff- including tinkering hobbyists, hardcore makers, and even that of using multiple printer types repeatably in a small business setting. We thought it would be fun to share these various perspectives on how we approach 3D printing projects with all of you. We are debuting our Lab staff/audience interactive panel called “How would you print that!” We will start with some basic projects, work up to more advanced ones, and even talk through some audience projects. We’ll discuss slicer settings and supports, materials, printer types, SLA vs. FDM, temp settings, and even the economics of printing models. We are likely to cover different projects each interactive-panel session. Feel free to stop in for more than one!

PLEASE NOTE: The panel will be fast paced using more advanced printer lingo, so it’s recommended you either have some familiarity with 3D printing, or take one of our introductory classes. If your child has 3D printing or maker experience, or has taken the other classes and wants to learn more about 3D printing, they are welcome in this class. It is likely best for High School aged teens or late junior high aged students but any kid that has completed the introductory class without issue and is able to follow a faster paced technical conversation may also attend.

Room: Guava / Tamarind
