 RAPID PROTOTYPING (PRO)
 
   
PRO201: 3D Printing: Type A Machines SBU

3D printing allows you to quickly and easily create a physical object from a computer model, literally printing thin layers of the part one at a time. This is an easy way to prototype parts for machining or injection molding, or just making one-off parts out of convenience.

In this class, you will learn how to import, prepare, and print three-dimensional parts using the Series 1 3D printer from Type A Machines. With the largest build-space available at TechShop, the Series 1 can print larger objects than are possible with other 3D printers.

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

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

This class will not be transferable to or from the MakerBot classes for reservations.
