3D Printing for Artists: An Introduction

In this 2-day workshop artists will be introduced to 3D printing and how it can be brought into their own practice. We will cover software, hardware, and 3d model resources. Participants will be familiarized with the different types of printers, understand how to make a “watertight model” for printing, and where to find free 3d models online. Workshop includes a visit to Northforge FabLab. No experience necessary.
