This seminar provides an introduction to the technologies and processes shaping the 3D printing revolution. Studio staff demonstrate how Slover Library’s two Ultimaker 2+ 3D printers transform virtual models and raw materials into physical objects. During this seminar, attendees learn how to prepare their first 3D prints, including where to locate models on websites such as Thingiverse, basic techniques for using slicing software such as Cura to adjust print settings, and how to estimate printing time and material use. Attendees may submit their 3D models for printing at the discretion of studio staff for a small fee.
