Description :

Ever fancied getting into 3D printing but weren't sure where to start? Scared of the prices of high-end printers?

Then join us this summer for an introductory session where we will assemble a 3D printer, talk about the tech behind 3D printing, learn about 3D modelling and slicing software, and make our first prints together.

Each participant will receive a mint green, mini 3D printer, filament, and all the parts necessary to get it up and running. By the end of the session you'll have the know-how to 3D print model files downloaded from the internet!

No previous 3D printing experience is required. While this is an entry-level workshop, we recommend ages 9+ due to the complex nature of 3D modelling and printer setup. The printer has a 100mm x 100mm printing bed.


Please note that all under 14's MUST be accompanied by a responsible adult. 

Date: Sunday 21st August 2022
Time: 1pm-3:30pm
