There's never been a better time to try 3D printing. This course draws a roadmap for getting started with 3D printing (aka additive manufacturing), from choosing a printer to learning about 3D modeling. After surveying a variety of commercial 3D printing technologies (filament-based, laser sintering, and more), author Kacie Hultgren walks you step-by-step through a variety of 3D design tools, including 3D modeling and 3D scanning. You'll also learn how to repair designs so they're ready to print, with netfabb Studio, a 3D printing suite. This is a great course for both 3D printing novices as well as designers with existing modeling skills that want to enter the 3D printing marketplace.
MUSIC Hi, I'm Kacie Hultgren. Welcome to Up and Running with 3-D Printing. In this course we'll take a look at the exciting industry of 3-D printing. I'll start by introducing you to the technology, its history, and the types of things you can make with a 3-D printer. Then I'll talk about the different types of three printers and materials that are available. Next, we'll take a look at 3D content creation through 3D modeling and scanning, as well as studying some of the particular challenges associated with bringing a design to life through 3D printing.
Finally, I'll show you techniques for repairing 3D designs so that they're ready to print. This course is appropriate for a wide variety of levels. Now let's get started with Up and Running with 3D Printing.
