with Lindsey Hegemann

Calendar Next available session starts Jan 8, 2024 at 6 pm, runs for 5 weeks

In this course, students will learn about several different methods of additive manufacturing. They will learn the techniques, procedures, and safety precautions for operating several 3D printing machines, including SLA and FDM 3D printers. They will also learn about the use of 3D scanners for object reproduction or mechanical integration. Students will learn many different ways to incorporate 3D printing into their creative process, and how to think in 3 dimensional terms while problem solving. This course will include instruction on the basics of using Blender, a free and open source 3D modeling program, so they can print just about anything they wish, whether or not it already exists. By the end of this course, students will have the opportunity to take home a 3D print of their very own. For this class it is recommended to bring a personal laptop with a 3-button mouse, but we can provide those things if needed. Note that this class involves the handling of somewhat toxic materials such as UV resin, but we will be exercising caution with the use of PPE and safety protocols.
