Rocklin: Intro to 3D Printing & Rapid Prototyping

« All Events

  • This event has passed.


Sign up for this class to get hands-on training using the Ultimaker 2+ and MonoPrice 3D Printers.  This class will provide you with the information and confidence to operate a 3D printer.

Prototyping on 3D printers is surprisingly easy and very affordable.  For manufacturers wishing to develop new products, it is a great tool.  3D printing offers many options that conventional manufacturing lack.

Hacker Lab Members: this class is required to use the Ultimaker 2+ or Monoprice 3D printers, either in Sacramento or Rocklin.
