3D Printing is an Additive Manufacturing technique that creates a physical
object from a virtual 3D CAD model by depositing successive layers of
material. They work like the traditional inkjet printers, but instead
of ink, a 3D printer deposits desired material to manufacture an object from
its digital format. 3D printing and rapid prototyping, in general, are widely
claimed to have revolutionized not only the manufacturing industry but also
many other walks of life like medicine, aerospace and automotive industry.
This program on 3D Printing helps the participants understand the design,
functioning and operation of a basic 3D Printer.
Learn about the materials, designing of CAD models, working of a 3D Printer
Understand how to build and calibrate a 3D printer
Understand the basics of G code generation
The participants will get 3D printed models that they design
