- You should be able to use a PC on a beginner level
Welcome to the world of 3D printing. In this 3D printing course we’ll be going over the basics of the 3D printing world. This course is designed for beginners to gain an understanding of how a 3D printer works, and the process of going from a blank 3D design canvas, to a full physical print out.
Buying your first 3D printer is a big investment and it’s a good idea to really learn what you’re getting in to. It would be smart to first find out how the entire process works before you make a purchase. Like how it goes from a digital file to a full physical object. There are a lot of factors to consider before buying your printer, so it would also be a smart idea to get recommendations on which printer to buy, as well as the software that goes with it. This course gives recommendations on both.
If you’ve already purchased your 3D printer, that’s great! This course is also for you! 3D Printing for Beginners teaches you the basics that you need to know before you start your prints. As you might know by now, it’s more than just downloading a file and selecting “print.” This course will talk about the basic settings that make up the majority of the printing process. 3D Printing for Beginners will take you on a journey through the entire 3D printing process—from designing your own 3D model in a 3D design software, to then preparing it to print it in the “slicing” software, and finally printing the object. This course will show you step by step from start to finish how the entire 3D printing process works. It might seem overwhelming, but it’s actually incredibly simple and easy to do.
Who this course is for:
- Anyone who's interested in 3D printing
- Anyone who's purchased their first 3D printer
- Anyone who wants to buy a 3D printer
I LOVE costumes, especially superhero costumes! One of my all time favorites since I was a child is Iron Man. I just think his armor is so freaking cool!
Some more of my favorites are Cyborg, Dragoons from Final Fantasy, and Guyver.
I picked up costume building as a hobby to just do, and since my first build, I've fallen absolutely in love with it. And I want to share my love for superheros and dressing up with all of you!
I started with the Pepakura method of building costumes. And as I grew, I found 3D printing and fell absolutely in love with it. I've also found that I have a natural talent for understanding this incredible technology. So now I help people understand this tech and show them how it works.
The application for 3D printing is absolutely endless and I want to show everyone this amazing technology!
