Topics to cover related to 3D Printing, this is just a thought dump right now! There is a LOT to 3D printing, our current workshop is very broad, but doesn't necessarily get people comfortable with using our 3D Printers.

Generating classes / workshops based on interests of the individuals

3D Modeling Process for 3D Printing

  1. Limitations & advantages for 3D Modeling w/3D Printers
  2. Converting to the proper file format
  3. Different programs to actually creating models

Actual Printing Process of Printers at AHA

  1. Warping
  2. Slurry
    1. Creating Slurry
    2. Applying Slurry
  3. Sticking / lack of sticking
  4. Heat enclosure
  5. Kinks in the filament

Different types of 3D Printing

  • Stereolithography (SLA)
  • Selective Laser Sintering (SLS)
  • Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM)
  • Digital Light Process (DLP)
  • Multi Jet Fusion (MJF)
  • PolyJet
  • Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS)
  • Electron Beam Melting (EBM)

Downloading Models from the Web

  1. Converting
  2. Saving
  3. Opening

Other Wiki links about 3D Printers

Wiki pages that would be nice to have

  • Ender 5 page
  • Resin printer page
