By | October 25, 2011

The labs here has cover 3D printers over the past few years. But today we bring you Makerbot training for teachers via Makerbot.com (unfortunately this is in New York & not Kansas :( ) !

Are you a teacher or educator interested in bringing a MakerBot into the classroom? During this 4 hour session you will be introduced to 3-D printing with the MakerBot Thing-o-Matic. We’ll walk you step-by-step through the process of creating a 3-D computer model and preparing it for printing with the MakerBot. You will be given an overview of various 3-D modeling software tools that are available for free online. In addition, you will be shown a set of lesson plans that you can use with your students over the course of a semester. No prior knowledge of 3-D modeling or 3-D printing is required. Please bring a laptop computer to the workshop.
