The course is designed for one to four people and will last 3 hours. The session can take place at your location or at the U3D store. Book online in the “Contact Us ” section and we’ll call to arrange a time that suits you.

Who Is This Course For?

This course is aimed at any makers who want to get more out of their 3D printer. If you’re new to 3D printing and have just bought a printer, this course will provide an invaluable introduction to the process of preparing a 3D file for print and to your new 3D printer. If you are already somewhat experienced and want to gain a deeper understanding of your machine, the contents of the course will help you become a true master of your machine.

What Does It Cover?

This is a hands on course that requires full participation of its attendees. As such, all attendees will need access to a computer. In its basic form, the training will cover the following:

Preparing your design to print. Not all 3D designs are fit to print. We’ll guide you through the process of modifying your design so its fit to print on your machine.

Learning to use your slicer. Slicing a file for a specific machine is both an art and a science. This vital portion of the course will guide you from model orientation to support application to infill.

Operating your printer. Each 3D printer has its own unique printing charactaristics and we’ll work with you to get the most out of yours. You’ll learn levelling, build plate preparation, filament loading and more.

Maintaining your printer. 3D printers require regular maintenance and attention to keep running at full capacity. We’ll give you the basic knowledge of cleaning, unclogging and more to ensure you keep printing.
