3D printing is one of the most popular forms of digital fabrication, and allows you to transform digital 3d models that you scan, download, or create yourself, into physical objects for a variety of creative and technical projects.
We’ve collected a few resources here to help get you started, but if you really want to get a feel for it you can schedule a time to come by on one of our Maker Dayz and learn how to print something hands-on. Click on the videos below to get a quick sense of 3D printing.
