3D Printing Workshop | $260 OFF| Wollongong or Sydney

A fun, full-day workshop where you and your child discover an exciting future technology!

About the Workshop

Working as a team you and your child will discover the endless possibilities of 3D printing. We start the day by learning about 3D printing – what the technology is, how it’s evolving, the incredible applications it has and how it is solving real world problems.

Then we get on the tools and start using some basic design programs and methods to develop your very own unique object! Finally you get to print out your object to take home and show your family and friends.

More information about 3D printing

There’s little doubt that 3D printing is already changing the world in ways that the average person may not have even noticed. Let’s walk through a quick introduction to what 3D printing (additive manufacturing is the fancy term) actually is, the most common technology used (FDM), what are the benefits to the world and what kind of things you can create with it.

What is 3D printing?

3D Printing is the process of continually adding layers of material with a computer controlled device to create a three-dimensional object. It’s more broadly known as additive manufacturing because you add material to make a part, rather than cut it away from a piece of stock. 3D printers have been around since the late 70’s and have mostly been used for rapid prototyping. Modern printers are becoming more versatile though, producing finished products, prostheses, biomaterials, even jet engines and rockets. The impact and applications of 3D printing are rapidly growing as more people are exposed to the technology.

How do I get started?

With a 3D printer you can let your imagination run wild! Design and print replacement parts, wild and wonderful characters, puzzle parts, game tokens… Whatever you can think of! You’ll need to do some 3D modelling to get exactly what you want though. Fortunately there’s loads of great (and free!) 3D modelling programs available for anyone to get started with. If you’re struggling with ideas you can check out some of the cool stuff artists and engineers have shared on My Mini Factory for inspiration.
