Intro to 3D Printing

There are new applications for 3D printing every day!

This introductory class will give you an overview of 3D printing, the types and prices of printers and supplies in the marketplace, how to access basic software used for designs, and cool things you can do with 3D printing!

Learn about our 3D training programs along with career and industry opportunities with this amazing technology.

Level 1 3D Printing

This Level 1 course starts the first week of every month on Wednesday evenings or Saturday mornings.

Begin designing with TinkerCAD software to gain a basic understanding of the requirements, styles and structure of quality 3D printing.

Students will complete several 3D design projects in this 4-week course and prepare to expand their knowledge with the Level 2 course.

In this course students will begin designing with basic TinkerCAD software to gain an understanding of the requirements, styles and structure of quality 3D printouts.

Course Outline:

  • Week 1 (Class 1.1): The Basics of Additive Manufacturing (3D Printing)
  • Week 2 (Class 1.2): Introduction to TinkerCAD and Editing Objects
  • Week 3 (Class 1.3): Original Designs in TinkerCAD
  • Week 4 (Class 1.4): Advanced TinkerCAD Topics: Assemblies & Multi-Piece Prints

Students will complete several 3D design projects in this course and prepare to expand their knowledge with the Level 2 course. Keep your 3D creations, downloads and leave with a sound understanding of 3D printing.

If you are unable to make a scheduled session, it may be made up on the alternate day if space is available. Please register online to reserve your space, or make us aware of the change so we may do so for you.

COMPLETION OF LEVEL 1 3D PRINTING IS A PREREQUISITE FOR ANY LEVEL 2 SESSIONS

Level 2 3D Printing

Weekly 90 minute classes on Wednesdays from 7:30 – 9:00pm. (Level 2 courses enable students improve from basic understanding to proficiency.)

Go beyond tinkering with this in-depth Level-2 3D printing course.

Take your 3D design and printing skills to the next level with this challenging 12-hour course.

Move beyond the educational program, TinkerCAD, and onto Inventor, an industry standard software.

Hone your skills in Additive Manufacturing through the completion six-months-worth of fun projects.

The course focuses on two themes:

One is Sketching and 3D Design Actions and the other is Sculpting, Assemblies, and Mechanical Drawings.

Each part has theme 3 or more projects that students work through and print.

This Level 2 course offers rolling enrollment. With a STAR Membership, you may start at any time and register for any of the scheduled sessions, regardless if you had completed any prior Level 2 sessions.

Classes take place on Tuesday evenings or Saturday mornings.

If you are unable to make a scheduled session, it may be made up on the alternate day if space is available.

Please register online to reserve your space, or make us aware of the change so we may do so for you.
