This course is an introduction to 3D printing. The course will cover important settings for 3d printing such as infill, layer height, materials, speed, etc, as well as going over where to find those things in the slicing software and making adjustments. The 3D printing course is a two-part course that takes place over two sessions on Saturday with a 30 minute break in between.
You must purchase and bring 1-2 spools of 1.75mm pla flilament with you to the in person portion of the class. These run around $20/ea on Amazon and can last months. Instructor recommends the brand Hatchbox, which is the most popular and easy to use. Other recommended brands are: Overture, Proto-Pasta, ColorFabb, Ultimaker, and Makerbot. Please remember to bring a notepad or other way to take notes during class.
