3D Printing Workshop – December 2019

By September 19, 2019 No Comments

Have you heard the buzz about 3D printing and been wondering what it could offer you, and how to get started?

3D printing is an exciting technology that allows you to design and fabricate your own customised products. While there are some adaptive aids available for purchase that allow some people with disability to perform some tasks, in many cases there is no product at all, or if there is, you might have found that often it is not quite right for your specific needs. 3D printing offers you the ability to design and manufacture your own solutions, meaning you are no longer reliant on someone else to notice a problem, think of a solution, and get the design right. Now you can be that person, and with the right tools and skills you can make that perfect thing that solves your particular problem in precisely the right way. The opportunities are only limited by your imagination, creativity, problem solving ability, and design skills!

When: 10 – 14 December 2019

Duration: 4 nights

Where: Sargood on Collaroy

Please note: there are only 4 places available for this course

The 3D printing course at Sargood on Collaroy provides a hands-on introduction to the world of 3D printing. By the end of the course you will be a competent basic user of this technology, able to find 3D models designed by others, as well as design models of your own, and print them off successfully. The course will run over 3 days, with a structured training period each morning, and a less structured practice session each afternoon. Each evening your models will be printed off ready to be collected the following morning, and you will get to take these 3 models home with you. To support you to continue to practice and refine your skills, you will be provided with a further 3 complementary prints to use after completion of the course – you design your models at home, send the files in to us, and we’ll print them off and post them back to you.

Provision of a suitable laptop with 4GB RAM and a 512MB graphics card if you are unable to bring your own deviceProvision of a suitable laptop with 4GB RAM and a 512MB graphics card if you are unable to bring your own device

You will need to bring:

  • A laptop, preferably with 4GB RAM and a 512MB graphics card or better, plus charger. If you do not own such a laptop, one can be loaned to you, but it is definitely best to bring your own if you can.
  • An external mouse or mouse alternative, which provides the ability to perform the following mouse functions:
    • directional mouse movement (i.e. move a mouse pointer around the screen)
    • left click and drag
    • right click and drag
    • middle (or scroll wheel) click and drag
    • scroll

It is beyond the scope of this workshop to assist you to find ways to use a mouse in this way. If you require anything other than a standard mouse you will need to bring it with you, and have any issues with mouse access addressed prior to the workshop.

  • A suitable means of taking notes (paper and/or electronic PowerPoint slides will be provided)
  • 1-2 ideas for models you wish to design for yourself during the course
