Workshop: Introduction to 3D Printing

November 19, 2016 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Registrations are closed.

About the workshop

In this introductory-level, hands-on workshop, participants will be introduced to the basics of 3D printing, and will have the opportunity to model and print a simple object with a 3D printer. Workshop topics include:

  • What is 3D printing?
  • What can you make with a 3D printer?
  • Overview of different 3D printing technologies
  • Designing with 3D modeling and scanning
  • Creating watertight 3D designs
  • Repairing 3D files
  • Exporting 3D files

This workshop is supported by a grant from the Ohio Arts Council. Space for the workshop is being donated in-kind by the Ohio State University Department of Art.


No previous experience with 3D printing or 3D computer modeling is required.
