In this class, we will go over what you need to get started in 3d printing, some of its many applications, and how to finish a 3d print! Each student will have an opportunity to practice each step in the finishing process of a 3d print which they will then be able to take home to practice with after the class. We will cover removing support material, sanding, and painting. Make sure you're wearing clothing you don't mind getting a teeny bit dirty (we won't be making a big mess, I promise) and bring your sanding arms! This class is entry-level.
- Entry: Anyone, no matter their skill level, can take the class.
- Newbie: Has completed a sewing project or a similar project within that medium.
- Intermediate: Has completed multiple projects of varying difficulties, but lacks certain knowledge and techniques.
- Advanced: Is ready to learn just about anything and is ready to pick up a new skill!
