3D Creations: 

Printing and Finishing

Learn to navigate splicing software, calibrate, and use a 3D printer. Also learn some more advanced skills such as understanding the properties of various printing filaments, finishing techniques including sanding, acetone 'welding', and painting.

Students will learn how splicing software works, learn very basic G and M code for temp control, then print and finish at least one created piece they can take home with them.

Session 1 & 2 - April 18 6:00pm - 8:00pm & April 21 10:00am - 2:00pm (12:00 - 12:30 break): Introduction to splicing software, basic G and M code intro, model editing with splicing software, filament introduction, and best printing practices.

Session 3 - April 25 6:00pm - 8:00pm: Review of troubleshooting and finishing skills.

Session 4 - Final Class (scheduled 1-on-1 instruction): Part printing and finishing. Scheduling will be across several days during week 2 depending on students’ model sizes and potential printing road blocks (i.e. nozzle jams, etc.)

We will provide you with everything you need but feel free to bring your own laptop if you prefer.

There is a $10 material fee due to the teacher on the first day of class.  Please bring cash.
