Beginning 3D PrintingExpired

Jan 13, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm Pacific

What You'll Do:

Have you (or your school) just purchased a 3D printer? Are you wondering how to get started, and where you can find good educational materials? We will assume that you have minimal exposure to 3D printing and talk you through:

  • What a 3D printer can do
  • How to create a 3D-printable model with free programs, or where to find models online
  • The steps and software involved for common 3D printers
  • Different materials you can print with and why you might want to use each one

We’ll also introduce you to 3D printable math and science models we have developed.


What You'll Need:

A 3D printer, or plans to buy one. Participants should know what brand of 3D printer they have (if any) and have any associated software available.

About your Facilitator:

We are the authors of many books on 3D printing and maker tech, most recently "Make:Geometry."


  • Joan Horvath and Rich Cameron

    This class will be team-taught by Joan Horvath and Rich Cameron, the co-founders of Nonscriptum LLC. Nonscriptum is a consulting and training partnership focused on 3D printing and open-source technologies. Since 2015, Joan and Rich have collaborated on eight books  (most recently “MAKE: Geometry“) and many LinkedIn Learning courses.  They also have taught many educators how to get started with 3D printing and use the technology effectively in their classrooms. Joan is a recovering rocket scientist and alumna of MIT and UCLA, and Rich is a RepRap 3D printer innovator whose designs include the RepRap Wallace and Deezmaker Bukito.
