** 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 15 minutes before class). 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.
Prep Before Class: Please download the latest version of PrusaSlicer Software found here (free download). Feel free to install it after download, but this is not required as part of the class is helping you to set up the software on your machine.
Equipment and Software: Learn how to print objects using PrusaSlicer software with our Prusa MK3S printers.
Skills: This class will not go in-depth on the fundamentals of 3D printing, but focus on how to prepare and print your first object on our printers.
Course Materials: The reference guide for 3D printing can be found here. You do not need to read this ahead of time, but familiarization would be helpful.
What you’ll be able 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 PrusaSlicer 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.
