About

Gain an understanding of how BARN's 3D printers work. 3D printing has many uses, ranging from practical to fun, such as replacement parts, mold-making, medical models used in surgery, prototypes, and more.  

  • See a computer file get readied for printing in a process called "slicing."
  • Learn about filament, the material 3D printers use to make prints.
  • Start a print and see the printer actually print.

Bring your curiosity and questions. You can continue to use the 3D printers during open studio times when a studio monitor or other member can help you.

Materials

Optional: Bring a laptop with PrusaSlicer, a software tool for 3D printing, installed.

Class Policies

Ages 14 and up are welcome.
