3D printing is revolutionising the world of innovation, design and manufacturing. Whether you're wondering how to get your designs printed or already have access to 3D printers and need help on getting started, this workshop is for you.

For those already familiar with screen-based 3D design, we will cover the steps needed to convert your work into a format optimised for 3D printing, taking into consideration the wide variety of materials available.

For those of you less familiar with CAD, we'll be demonstrating free online tools that allow you to quickly turn your design ideas into 3D models suitable for printing.

And for those of you who simply with to use, adapt or customise some of the millions of 3D models already available for download from the internet, we'll show you how to find what you're looking for.

  • 3D printer filaments including electrically conductive filaments
  • Apps for creating and editing 3D models
  • Optimising your 3D designs for printing
  • Useful sites for downloading existing 3D models
  • Where to get models 3D printed
  • Complementary materials, tools and processes
  • Professional, multifunctional 3D printer pen
