Come explore 3D Printing with the Ultimaker 2+ 

Make a small 3D printed object in PLA, learning to go from simple design creation to printing an object. In this workshop, you will be lead through an introduction to basic 3D modeling, generating g code for the 3D printer, and setting up and running a 3D printer. This workshop will teach you the basis of setting up a file for 3D print success. It is great for those wanting to explore 3D modeling and printing in a workshop-style format lead by an awesome Student Technician Instructor.

You will learn: 
  • The capabilities and limitations of our Ultimaker 2+ 3D printers.
  • An overview of Tinkercad, with a focus on designing for 3D print success.
  • How to navigate Cura to orient your model and choose the correct settings for printing. 
  • Sears think[box]'s system for requesting an SD card and filament.
  • How to set up your 3D printer for printing.   
  • What to look for when 3D printing, as well as tips and tricks for troubleshooting common issues.
Important Notes:
  • All participants will make an instructor-lead project. If your goal is to complete a personal print or project, this training teaches skills that support that goal, but will not provide time or support for personal projects.
  • Come in any time during our open hours to work on personal projects. Student Technicians are available during those times to help. Schedule a consultation for projects that need additional support. 
  • This training is not mandatory for using the 3D printers. You can jump right in to 3D printing with our Ultimakers by following our online tutorials

Training is open and free for participants ages 8+. Participants 8-13 must complete training with an accompanying adult. 

This class may be cancelled if it does not reach it's minimum required amount.
