STEAM541: Parent and Child MakerBot Replicator 3D Printer SBU


Thanks to 3D printing, you can quickly and easily create a physical object from a computer model, literally printing the part as it goes. This is an easy way to prototype your parts before machining or injection molding.

In this class, you will learn how to import, prepare and print your three-dimensional parts using the MakerBot Replicator 3D printer. By the end of the class, you will have all the information and knowledge necessary to use this machine for all your 3D printing needs.

The class will print a small part that TechShop has designed.

Each slot in this course is for 1 Parent/Guardian and 1 child. Both participants will be certified on our tools. To sign up, enroll the parent/guardian and pay, then call the front desk to enroll the child.

Prerequisites: None

Equipment access: 3D printer

Minimum age: 8 years. Parent/guardian must be at least 18

Supervision requirements: When using the 3D printer outside of class time, 8- to 12-year-olds may only use equipment during Supervised Maker Sessions (classes and course being taught and supervised by TechShop Youth Education instructors). All 12- to 17-year-old members must be accompanied and supervised by a parent or guardian who has passed the SBU when using the tool outside of Supervised Maker Sessions.

Safety: Closed-toed shoes are mandatory.

Once you take and successfully pass this class, you can use this equipment for your projects whenever you work at TechShop as a member!
