What would you create if you had a machine that could make almost anything? From simple replacement parts, toys and artistic creations to customized prosthetics, medical aids and even live tissue. 3D Printing is taking the world by storm! One of the greatest thing about this technology is that the field moves faster than the speed of light and technological advancements take place in huge leaps and bounds.
Join us for a free 3D Printing workshop, hosted by Pitkin County Library, where we are going to show you the Desktop aspect of 3D Printing (3DP). You will gain familiarity with the different desktop 3DP technologies and the best applications they are suited for as well as materials used. A brief look at what others are making with those robots and how you can start using them when you need them. We will talk about the past, the present and the future developments of the additive manufacturing technology, so it can help you get the whole picture right.
In this 2-3 hour workshop you will learn the 3D Printing workflow – all the steps necessary in order to 3D print an object. Together we will go through the challenges and the solutions, and why it’s all worth it at the end. We call it “From idea to completion”, where a live demonstration of the whole process will take place.
If you are one of those folks, who are “ahead in the game” we have something for you as well. Bring all your questions regarding 3D Printing and we will make sure you will get them answered at the Q&A section, towards the end of the workshop. Your questions and/or specific interest will help us tailor the next workshop topic, so don’t be shy and ask on 🙂
