The folks at Laneway Learning and Makers Place are collaborating on some guerrilla education this May.
This class will highlight what we are all about - Making for social & environmental good!
When: Wednesday, May 13th 7:00pm to 8:15pm
Whats it all about:
As 3D printers become more sophisticated and affordable and a number of patents expire, their potential to assist in response to global development and humanitarian challenges increases dramatically. Already 3D printers have been used to print low-cost soft-tissue prosthetics and medical supplies and efforts are underway to make it possible to print solar panels, greenhouses, dental implants, and more.
What we will cover:
– Inspiring case studies and history of the technology
– Applications and materials
– Commercial vs consumer technologies
– What trends that are driving this revolution
– What is CAD design
– Functions of a 3D printer
There will be 3D printers set up for you to see in action and an opportunity to discuss what you would like to make with a 3D printer and Melissa will give you feedback on the feasibility.
Who will be teaching:
Melissa from Three Farm will be introducing us to the world of 3D printing. Three Farm facilitates cultural engagement though the marriage of digital and tradition fabrication as a platform for teaching design.
