Tim Guthrie

3D Printing with Makerbots

June 10th – 14th, 2019


An introduction to 3D printing where participants will be able to download existing files to print (beginners) or even learn to make files from scratch (intermediate and advanced), depending on their level of expertise. Tim Guthrie will share his work, his techniques, and his knowledge, and you will leave the workshop with actual 3D prints, as well as the knowledge of how and where to go to continue printing long after the workshop has ended.
The SNC lab has a couple of MakerBot printers, and those will be the main printers utilized during the workshop, but you will also learn how to order virtually any type of print via online sources, as well. The possibilities are virtually endless.
In order take full advantage of the workshop, you will be expected to communicate with Tim Guthrie via email in the weeks leading up to the workshop so that you can arrive as fully prepared, as possible. The week will go by quickly, and 3D printing can be slow, so we want to hit the ground running the moment you arrive.
