Course Outline

Embark on an exciting journey into the world of technological innovation with our 3D Printing for Beginners course, designed by expert Sergei. This hands-on course offers a fast-track introduction to 3D printing, a cutting-edge rapid manufacturing technology embraced by a wide range of industries, businesses, educators, craftsmen, DIY enthusiasts, and contemporary artists experimenting with recycled and biodegradable plastics. 3D printing is in high demand for creating sophisticated and high-quality crafts and industrial prototypes. Regardless of your professional background, this beginner-friendly course opens up a world of creative possibilities, where digital 3D modelling merges with 3D printing technology to ignite your imagination and hone your design skills. Explore potential roles as a 3D modeler, digital sculptor, additive technologist, or business prototyper, while crafting impressive 3D prints for personal or professional use. Key Learning Objectives: • Understand the trends in additive technology • Learn the basics of operating and servicing 3D printers • Master the essentials of 3D modelling for 3D printing • Utilize PLA and ABS plastic techniques • Discover best practices for slicing and printing intricate 3D objects • Access and work with public 3D print libraries Upon completion, you will be familiar with FlashForge 3D printers, 3D design software (TinkerCAD, Fusion 360, ZBrush), creating 3D printing projects, slicing software, operating 3D printers, basic servicing and troubleshooting, and post-printing processing of 3D prints. This course will also help you make an informed decision if you're considering purchasing a 3D printer. Course Schedule Week 1: Introduction to 3D Printing Technology Week 2: 3D modelling and working with slicing software Week 3: 3D printing focused design: best practices Week 4: Operation and servicing 3D printers Recommendations Students are encouraged to bring a USB/memory stick for storing tutorial videos, presentations, 3D models, slicing files, and other data. Windows desktops equipped with 3D design software and three 3D printers with basic filaments will be available in the classroom. Students may also bring their own devices (laptops) and additional/special filament for modelling and printing practice.
