Workshop Description

We will also discuss ways that artists are using 3D printing for their creative projects and look at examples of methods to incorporate it within other artistic disciplines.

We will cover:

• Basic techniques for getting started with 3D modeling

• How to import 3D models into 3D slicing software and generate gcode

• How to transfer 3D gcode files to the 3D printer

• The key mechanics of our Tinkerine DittoPro 3D printer works

• Includes a small booklet of 3D printing resources

This workshop is a requirement for those that have never used a 3D printer before in order to be able to access our more advanced, upcoming 3D printing workshops.

Advantages to taking a workshop with ICOAAT, include small class size, downtown location and hands on instruction.

$40 per person. As an extra bonus, each participant will receive a 3D printed item from our shop to take home! ***Suggested Requirements: Please bring your own laptop computer if possible (not necessary though.)
