Into to 3D Printers
Jun 22 @ 2:00 pm – 3:30 pm

As an additive form of manufacturing, 3D printers are able to produce some designs that other forms of manufacturing can’t.  These machines can create anything from the practical to the frivolous, such as a replacement knob for wherever one has gone missing to your favorite cowboy keychain. No prior knowledge of 3D modeling or design needed, come learn everything you need to know to get started!
