Want to try your hand at 3D printing? Curious about what this technology is, does? Want to figure out the software? Need some insights from friends and community to get you started? Just want to stare listlessly at the magic of gooey plastic oozing into a creation?nnCome on down to this open, free event. This is an informal workshop day where anything goes. If you're interested in 3D printing (or just being a nerd in general), just bring yourself, your brain, and any snacks or accessories you might like. nnLorin will facilitate, but emphasis is on everyone learning from each other (Lorin is a professional educator, which means that he's smart, and good at rhetoric, but not necessarily the font of all wisdom on any topic). nnWe'll start up the printers and set up some movies in the lounge including the new documentary, “Print The Legend”. nnLorin will bring 2 printers he uses to teach and do workshops with:nnUltimaker 2 (provided by Schoff Foundation,and UCForward, and co-owned by UC, Hive13, and community education partners)nPrintrbot simple metal (Lorin's personal teaching machine)nCopy of Simplify3D if you'd like to try Lorin's or use Cura or whatever open source tool you prefer!nnOther Hive13 printers / resources based on availability.nnOpen and free to all. Drop on by. Experts and novices alike! If you're really ambitious, we'll have some new PETG and Nylon filaments from Taulman to try in the Ulltimaker2.nnWhen: Saturday, 1/30 2016 Noon-8pmnWho: Anyone!nCost: Free!nnOptional Donation: 3D printer filament to support further community outreach courses and eNable prosthetic printing, or small monetary donation for purchase of filament (not required).
