3D Printing is a groundbreaking technology that is supporting and disrupting many industries around the world. This workshop will introduce you to 3D printing and the technical skill of operating the machines on offer at COMMUNE Makers Place in Erskineville. After this 2 hour induction you will be able to tinker and experiment with the 3D printers autonomously and understand what makes a successful print.
With a maximum of only 8 people, you can have a close one-to-one chat with our resident 3D printing expert to get the most out of the time. You can either bring with you a specific 3D printable file (must be a .STL file) or if you don’t have a design in mind you can learn by using a 3D file we have created to help people with a disability. The final object will then be donated to someone who needs this tool to help their daily life.
*Please note: This workshop contains no CAD design. You will be learning how to send a file to print successfully. We also run 3D Design classes on the first Wednesday of the month. For more information check out our events page.
