Intro to 3D Printing

3D printing has become both easier and more affordable with the growth of new machines and software that makes the experience fun and simple.

This two-hour class will cover the basic steps needed to take your digital model and make it come to life off the screen. This will include:

  • Finding your source files and what types can be used
  • Setting up your files in a slicer and what settings to use
  • Preparing the printer for the printing process
  • Steps to take to troubleshoot problems and innovate new ideas

To ensure the maintenance of our machines, either this class or a proficiency test is mandatory to use the onsite printers.

Class is open to ages 10 and up, though minors must be accompanied by a responsible adult at all times. The adult must purchase an additional ticket to attend the class.

Guests are asked to be on time for events.

MakerSpace Charlotte is located in the brick side door, up the ramp. Ring bell for entry.
