During the workshop participants will learn basics of 3D printing. After short theoretical introduction, we will focus on practical application of FDM (Fused Deposition Modeling) printers, which is the most common type. Participants will acquire all the necessary skills and knowledge required to operate a 3D printer on their own: including preparing the model, selecting material and parameters, preparing the printer and finally taking off the finished print and its postprocessing.
After the workshop participants will gain permission to reserve and use 3D printers in Makerspace@UW.
