3D printing masterclass for absolute beginners

Feb 5, 2022 · Burbank, United States of America

STL, G code, polymers, CAD, where to begin?

3D printing has come a long way since the days of making our first Yoda heads on a Makerbot Cupcake. There's now a hugely diverse ecosystem of model repositories, CAD softwares, and slicers which make the process much more streamlined and user-friendly.

What we're going to do for you is distill that variety down to its essence - giving you insight to streamlining the workflow and software stack to get you running like a pro.

Sure, it's neat to download other people's designs for potato chip bag clips, but what if you need something custom-designed to hold your keyring together, or a christmas tree ornament of your own head? These things and more are some of the processes we will cover during this class.

For reference, my software stack of preference is:

Fusion360 for CAD
Microsoft Kinect SDK for point cloud aquisition
Meshlab for STL refinement
Cura for slicing
Octoprint for printer management

a 3 button mouse is also very helpful

We'll explain proper care and feeding for 3D printers, boundaries and limitations of the technology, solving problems with software, and quick calibration techniques for making your print correct on the first try.

Join us for the info, stay for the lulz as we turn you or your friend into a jack-in-the-box antenna topper

Can't join us physically? We'll stream this directly to your frontal lobes from Discord. Stay tuned for a link!

Important note: I will move your RSVP to Not Going if you don't attempt to answer the question when signing up.
