Much like the Laser Cutter Requirements Sheet, my students use the attached Requirement Sheet to earn the 3D Printer Skill Badge. My objective on the requirements sheet is to have the students familiar enough with the software and device that they can operate it independently. Especially with the 3D printer, it is important that they know when it is operating correctly and how to troubleshoot when something is going wrong. I was not interested in teaching them maintenance on the machine, or require them to build their own so by all means, feel free to modify the sheet to fit your needs.
