Waag Academy Masterclass: 3 days of Fablab Winter School 3D

3D printing: learn to print and make your own 3D printer

Fablab Amsterdam offers you the opportunity to build your personal 3D printer and learn all there is to know about 3D printing. In three days you will master the essence of 3D modeling skills, and build your own 3D printer to take home. After an introduction of the Fablab and the basics of 3D printing, you will learn how to set up a model for printing and build your own printer; a model based on Orca (RepRap Mendel). On the last day of the Winter School you will be using your own printer and get a hands-on troubleshooting course on operating your 3D printer.
