The Fundamentals of 3D Printing


No prior experience needed as this course is designed for beginners
Access to 3D Printer is optional (There are 2 modules that access to a 3D printer is required to practice what you’re learning))


If you’re looking to dive into the world of 3D printing and unleash your creativity, this comprehensive course on 3D printing fundamentals is the perfect place to start. Regardless of your current knowledge level, you’ll learn everything you need to know about designing and 3D printing your own models on an FDM 3D printer.This course takes you through the entire 3D printing workflow, from how 3D printers work to file types, CAD software, slicer settings, printer setup, and even troubleshooting common beginner mistakes. With step-by-step guidance and hands-on projects, you’ll gain the skills and confidence needed to create and 3D print your own unique designs. Each section is designed to focus on the necessary skills and concepts you need to get 3D printing as quickly as possible.By the end of the course, you’ll be equipped to independently design your own 3D models in Tinkercad and print them on an FDM printer. You’ll also have the knowledge to troubleshoot common challenges that can arise in the 3D printing process. Whether you’re interested in prototyping, custom parts, art, or simply exploring the possibilities of 3D printing, this course is an excellent starting point.Join us today and unlock the joys of 3D printing while unleashing your creativity and bringing your imagination to life.
