A brief introduction to 3D printing technology. In this course I recommend the following videos:
An introduction to the basic functions of our MakerBot units and associated software. In this course I recommend most of the videos in the segments ‘Getting Set Up with the Replicator 2 and 2X’, ‘Preparing a 3D Model’, ‘Slicing in Depth’ and a couple from ‘Trouble Shooting Problems’
Getting Set Up with the Replicator 2 and 2x: (We have a 2x model and its very similar predecessor the Replicator 1 in the Fab Lab)
Preparing a 3D Model:
Slicing in Depth:
Many of our Digital Foundations courses at FSU provide instruction on the use of TinkerCAD 3D design software. This course may help you refresh on the basics of that program. In the above course I recommend the entire segment ‘Design in TinkerCAD’
For even more videos related to these and other machines in the lab you are invited to explore this list of tutorials I ask the Fab Lab monitors to watch.
