*FREE* 3D Printing Workshop in Bury

Posted by Team MadLab, 10 months ago

This October we’ll be providing the good people of Greater Manchester with a free workshop in 3D printing. In this five hour workshop and self-directed learning/technical surgery session, you’ll learn all there is to know (or as much as we can stuff into the session) about 3D printing technologies. Having learnt about the uses of 3D printing – both in industry and for fun, you’ll then get the chance to design your own model!

You’ll be shown which materials can be used and be introduced to various design tips, tricks and techniques to use with our 3D printer – the fab Ultimaker 2+,  which you’ll get see in action in a live demo! This workshop will also feature a masterclass in 3D-modelling software Tinkercad, allowing you to get designing straight away.

Following the workshop you will be able to stay and continue self-directed learning on Tinkercad as the MadLab expert facilitators will be on-hand for a 90 minute drop-in 3D Print Technical Surgery. Providing advice and guidance (both general and specific), on a range of topics – from getting started, buying a first 3D printer, through to more business-facing challenges.

Participants will also receive a free three-month basic membership to our very own MadFabLab, an accredited FabLab packed with 3D printers – plus laser cutters, bench tools, mini CNC machine and more – worth £90!

Tickets available from Evenbrite –

This workshop and technical surgery are delivered on behalf of the Big Ideas Generators Project by MadLab.
