Please consider attending one of the following 3D printing workshops hosted this spring. The “Introduction to 3D Printing” workshop is a repeat of last fall’s workshops while the “3D Printing in the Disciplines” workshops are focused on engaging faculty who are interested in incorporating 3D printing technologies into their courses. All sessions will be held in Joyner Library, room 1020.
Introduction to 3D Printing
Are you curious about how 3D printing works and how you can create and print your own 3D models? In this class, we will provide an overview of 3D printing technologies, learn about the Joyner Library’s 3D printing service, and introduce basic 3D modeling tools and online model repositories. Hayden Holleman, 3D printing specialist in Joyner Library’s Teaching Resources Center, will lead all introductory workshops on 3D printing in Joyner Library room 1020.
These workshops will offer participants a hands-on opportunity to learn about and create objects using 3D printing technology. Participants will learn to design a small part in Tinkercad (www.tinkercad.com), a beginner level 3D modeling software. Upcoming dates and times are:
February 25, 6:00 – 7:00pm
March 17, 6:00 – 7:00pm
March 31, 6:00 – 7:00pm
April 14, 6:00 – 7:00pm
3D Printing in the Disciplines
Joyner Library’s Teaching Resources Center will be hosting information sessions for faculty demonstrating how our 3D printers can be integrated into college courses. Not sure how 3D printing works? Wondering what is has to do with your classes? Just want to see the printer in action? Stop by one of these demonstrations to hear how 3D printing works and how it can work for your classes! Each session will demonstrate examples of how other institutions are using 3D printing in each discipline, and are intended to assist faculty and staff who are interested in incorporating 3D printing into their courses.
(NOTE: The first half of these sessions will be a repeat of the Fall 2015 “Intro to 3D Printing” workshops with discipline specific examples discussed in the second half of each session.)
