Introduction to 3D Printing

Date: 10:30am - 11:45am PDT May 21

3D printing is a quickly expanding field, with the popularity and uses for 3D printers growing every day.  In this workshop, I will attempt to give an introduction to the wide range of technologies in 3D printers, a comparison of the most common 3D printers on the market, an overview of materials that can be used to print, online services and communities that offer 3D models or 3D printing services, and an intro to designing and printing your first model.


3D printing can be used to prototype, create replacement parts, and is even versatile enough to print prostheses and medical implants.  It will have a growing impact on our world, as more and more people gain access to these amazing machines.
