In this workshop artists will walk through a basic workflow for desktop 3D printing. A range of topics will be covered including 3D design, file preparation, online communities and resources, and of course on site 3D printing. All software used will be free and available for artists to download to use on their own workstations. We will discuss materials, design considerations, available and near future technologies, as well as commercial print services. Participants will leave the two-day workshop with a solid foundation upon which to build further skillsets based on their particular interests.
