Welcome to the first FABLAB Manorhamilton newsletter of 2016. We all had a great Christmas and Santa brought us a new toy for the Lab in the shape of a New Matter MOD-T Desktop 3D Printer. We have decided that January will be 3D PRINTING MONTH, so to kick things off how about...

FREE 3D Printing Taster Workshops.

Come along on either Thursday 21st or Thursday 28th January from 6:30pm to 8:00pm and get some up close and personal time with our 3D printers and see how the 3D printing revolution could be useful at home, at the office or for the kids. These free taster workshops will cover - 
  • Introduction to 3D Printers Hardware - Different Types of 3D Printers | Demo of FABLAB Ultimaker 2 Printer.
  • Machine Operation - Setting up a 3D Printer | SD Card, USB or Wireless | Printer Control and Operation.
  • Introduction to 3D Printer Software - 3D Slicing Software | 3D Printing Quality Settings | 3D Printer Files
  • Introduction to 3D Modelling Software and Libraries - Different 3D CAD packages | Open Source (Free) vs Paid Applications | Online 3D Model Libraries.
  • Real World Uses of 3D Printing.
No prior 3D printing experience is required.

* Please note that, during this taster session we will not be teaching 3D modelling, we will only introduce the various softwares for 3D modelling for participants to try out in their own time.
