** Note: due to Covid-19, this certification will be taught in two parts. The first portion will be taught virtually in our online classroom (you will receive a Zoom link in your email receipt after you register). At the completion of this online portion, you will schedule a one-on-one machine practical with your instructor to complete the hands-on portion of your training physically at the makerspace at a time that works for you. Both parts (virtual and in-person) are included in your purchase of this event.**
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.
Please sign up at least 24 hours in advance. To check availability within 24 hours of this event’s start time, call 833-2-MAKE-IT.
