Instructor - Quantum Wei
Quantum has over a decade of experience with 3D printing. Back in college, he and a friend constructed a Prusa Mendel from scratch. Since then, he has used 3D printing in various capacities: to make 3D printer parts, reverse osmosis membrane spacers, and art pieces. Quantum has three degrees in mechanical engineering from MIT and has extensive teaching experience.
This introductory course is for anyone who wants to get into 3D printing, a type of additive manufacturing. Specifically, you will learn how to use the Prusa printers in the Digifab lab, a type of fused deposition modeling printer. By the end of the class, you'll learn about designing parts for 3D printing, slicing parts, and exporting GCode to the printers so they know where to move. The class will also include testing on the machines so that you can start printing whatever you like within the constraints of these machines.
The materials fee for this class is $10. This is separate from the ticket price and is to reimburse the instructor for any tools or materials used in this class. This will be paid once, directly to the instructor at the start of the first class meeting. This instructor accepts payments in cash or through Venmo or Paypal.
