You asked for it; we’re making it happen! On Saturday, September 8th at 1:00 pm in the afternoon, we will be hosting a class on how to use the 3D printer at Workshop 88.  Are you just interested in seeing how 3D printers work?  Stop by and check it out!  As always, this class is OPEN TO THE PUBLIC.  Questions?  Email us: info@workshop88.com

The class will show how to go from some simple geometric description to a real printed object using workshop 88′s CupCake 3D printer. We’ll briefly describe using Sketchup to create a 3D model, then show how to convert to printable (.stl) format, compile to gcode, and print the object. We’ll show the parts of the printer, how to turn it on, how it’s controlled, and how to print an object.  When class is done, you should feel fairly comfortable experimenting with the printer, and have an idea about what you can do with it.
