Building 3D Printers

Join this workshop to
1. learn basics of building 3D printers;
2. build one for yourself or as a christmas gift to your loved one.

Objective of this workshop is to provide participants with a basic understanding of 3D printing technology, and how to build and operate one safely. By the end of the workshop, each participant will have participated in building a 3D printer and understand the basics of servicing and maintaining a printer operational. This workshop covers only the very basics for building, operating and servicing 3D PRINTERS, but does not provide extensive training on modelling in CAD, nor 3D modelling / CAD software required to generate STL type of files the 3D printers use, emphasis is on how to build and operate 3D printers.
