3D Printing 101: Self-Serve Certification

7:00 PM – 8:30 PM


This class is limited to 20 participants. Registration is required.

This class enables customers to book Prusa i3 MK3S and MK3S+ 3D printers at the Stanley A. Milner Library's Makerspace. Once you've attended this online class, you'll be eligible to start 3D printing by booking a
virtual appointment with staff. Once libraries re-open, staff will complete the second part of your training on the 3D printer's operation during your first in-person 3D printer booking.

In this class EPL will cover:

  • Basic 3D printing concepts, materials, and equipment terminology.
  • Safe use of a 3D printer, guidelines for use at EPL, and material fees.
  • Design best practices.
  • Profiles, settings, and slicing process with PrusaSlicer.

Prior to the class, registered participants will receive a Zoom link.

For this course, it's recommended that:

  • Participants are comfortable typing, mousing, and navigating Windows OS files and folders.
  • Participants download free PrusaSlicer (drivers & apps) to follow along with the slicing demonstration, however, this is optional.

This class is primarily designed for ages 12 and up. We welcome younger customers to participate - they may need help from a parent or caregiver for the class. Customers under 12 must be accompanied by a caregiver during in-person 3D printing bookings.

Suitable for:
Makerspace and Making
