In this 2 hour workshop, participants will be guided through the 3D printing process using our Prusa 3D printer. We will cover the basics of 3D printing, sourcing a model from Thingiverse, and customizing our designs using TinkerCAD. From there we will explore the Prusa Slicer software and prepare our models for 3D printing. No previous experience is necessary and all equipment and materials will be provided. Completion of this workshop grants access to the Hackspace 3D printer during member and drop-in times.
