Get introduced to 3D printing by seeing BARN's printers up close and gain an understanding of how they work.
See a computer file get readied for printing in a process called "slicing."
See our different printers and learn about filament, the material 3D printers use to make prints.
You will start a print and see the printer actually print.
3D printing has many uses, ranging from practical to fun, such as replacement parts, mold-making, medical models used in surgery, prototypes, and more.
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.
Optional: Bring a laptop with PrusaSlicer, a software tool for 3D printing, installed.
