I’ve been enjoying the first tutorial session lead by Practical 3D Printer writer and instructor, Brian Evans. He has been engaged with this stuff as long as I have, and has done a great job of introducing those brand new to 3D printing to what those desktop units are all about! In the above photo he quickly put together “3D” in OpenSCAD for the audience.
Here are some details about his session from conference guide:.
Tutorial 1: Desktop 3D Printers – From Start to Finish
A look at designing models for desktop 3D printing for artists, designers, engineers, and inventors looking to bring fused filament fabrication (FFF) to their desktop with a guide to the design do’s and don’ts for successful 3D printing, including an introduction to solid modeling and how to prepare digital models for printing.
