Enter the world of an exciting new technology with implications that will change manufacturing forever. Similar to a 2d paper printer, a 3d printer can take a file from your computer made using CAD software and extrude layers of molten plastic to create an actual physical object based on your design. Use 3D printers to prototype physical parts cheaply before having them mass produced, make one off designs as tools or art, create negatives to cast a mold, or design cool figurines as decorations.
Don’t know how to create 3D designs? Don’t worry! There are thousands of designs uploaded to popular websites for free that you can browse through, or you can take one of our Fusion 360 CAD classes to gain useful 3D modelling skills.
TOOLS AND MATERIALS:
Provided: Lulzbot Taz 6 3D Printer, Printing Filament
If you have a specific file you would like to start out with please bring it in on an SD card, our printers can only use the .STL format.
