3D Printer Certification
Note: this class will be taught remotely and students should NOT come to the makerspace as we are closed due to Covid-19.
This course is the certification to be able to use the 3D printers at Seattle Makers to make your own projects. Open to members of Seattle Makers and non-members; members can enroll for a discounted rate. For more information about the 3D printers and the other tools/equipment in our workshop, go here.
Equipment and Software: Learn the basics of Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF) on our Prusa i3+ 3D Printers.
Skills: This class will cover the printing with PLA and discuss other types of materials that can be printed. We’ll also touch on designing for 3D printing.
What you’ll be able to to do by the end of the certification: You will learn how to take a 3D model file (downloaded or modeled by a CAD program) and use Simplify 3D software to slice it into layers for a 3D printer to print. You’ll also leave with resources to find and print amazing 3D projects.
The final, practical portion to complete this certification will be taught by appointment (after we re-open) at no additional charge.
We will email you a link for you to join the online classroom the day of the event.
