Basics of 3-D printing: What do you need to know before you buy a 3-D printer
Time & Location
About the Event
There's never been a better time to try 3D printing. This workshop aims to familiarize you with 3D printing (aka additive manufacturing), and to go over the basics of 3D Printing, from choosing a 3D printer, to setting up, and troubleshooting. After surveying a variety of commercial 3D printing technologies (filament-based, laser sintering, and more), Michael Nashef will help you find answers such as, what printer do I need? Can I afford one? Should I use FDM or SLA (Stereolithography) printers? He will go over the most common mistakes/issues and troubleshooting problems that new users face. This is a great workshop for both 3D printing novices as well as designers with existing modeling skills that want to enter the 3D printing marketplace.
