3D printing
Maker

As overwhelming as 3D printing seems, with a little knowledge, an eye for detail, and some patients, 3D printing is a ton of fun and possibly how most things will be made in the future. There currently is no 3D Printer Geek squad, so understanding the process is your best tool. I know you have seen 3D printers online, in a store display, or maybe a friend just can’t stop talking about them. Are they just a fad, or worth investing your time to understand this technology. Should you build your own, or buy? How do these things really work? Do I really need to know what a hotend is, and why would I ever want to extrude something? These are valid questions, and I have the answers. I will have live demonstrations of two different types of printers, and go over everything you need to know to get going in this fast paced addictive technology.
