If you're interested in 3D printing but haven't even purchased a printer yet, this course is made for you. A few years ago I took the plunge and bought myself a 3D printer. Since then I've been teaching other people about 3D printing at home.
Allen M says: "Far more interesting than I would have thought for an introductory course. Just enough to show me that I can achieve what I want, relatively easily. Some things to avoid. A very practical course."
Brandon V says: "Thank you Jason for sharing with us some of the essentials of 3D printing. I am grateful for your efforts, as well as the additional links to more information... Thank you!"
In this course I'll teach you what 3D printers are, how they work, tips for purchasing one and how to use it to create amazing 3D prints.
Many people are too scared to purchase their first 3D printer because they don't really know what's involved in buying and running one. I felt like this myself once, so don't worry.
I now know exactly what's involve and that's what I'll teach you here. I'll also demonstrate the process of designing a simple chess piece using two free design tools, Tinkercad and OpenSCAD. This will give you a feel for what's involved in inventing and designing your very own products.
Even if you don't want to buy your own 3D printer yet, after going though these lectures and examples you'll be able to start designing products immediately. I'll even show you how to outsource your printing to companies who have some of the best 3D printers in the world, so you can become involved in this amazing technology without ever having to purchase a 3D printer. It doesn't cost the earth either!
This course consists mainly of videos, slides and on screen demonstrations all created by myself. It should only take you a couple of hours to complete. It'll be a couple of hours very well spent though because afterwards you'll have all the knowledge and confidence to become involved in 3D printing quickly, cheaply and easily.
As I've found out myself, 3D printing is interesting and can be great fun too. Designing and selling your products can even be quite profitable. I love it and I'm sure you will too!
Thanks for taking an interest and I look forward to you being my student.
