FREE 3D printing workshops in Tameside, Stockport, Oldham, Bolton and Rochdale

Posted by Team MadLab, about 1 month ago

Want to have a go at 3D printing, but don’t know where to start? Then join MadLab in Greater Manchester over the next few weeks for these free workshops and drop-in sessions covering all the basics you’ll need to get going. 

You’ll get the chance to get hands-on with 3D printing and design, including designing a 3D model, preparing a 3D file for printing, and watching a live demonstration of a 3D print being created on the Ultimaker 2+.  Join us at a drop-in session to get specific help and advice for your own project, chat with our tutors about any specific questions related to 3D printing that you have, or simply hang out and learn.

The dates are:

Friday 16th February at Tameside Library – 10:30 am – 1:30 pm workshop followed by a drop-in technical surgery and self-directed learning from 2:00 pm – 3:30 pm

Friday 23rd February at Stockport Library – 10:30 am – 1:30 pm workshop followed by a drop-in technical surgery and self-directed learning from 2:00 pm – 3:30 pm

Thursday 8th March at Rochdale Central Library – 11:00 am – 2:00 pm workshop followed by a drop-in technical surgery and self-directed learning from 2:30 pm – 4:00 pm

Friday 9th March at Oldham Library − 10:30 am − 1:30 pm workshop followed by a drop-in technical surgery and self-directed learning from 2:00 pm − 3:30 pm
