On the 14th of November at 18:00 did KTH Maker Space organization at Drottning Kristinas väg 53 teach a introductory course in 3D printing with the help of the company FebTech.
3D printing technologies started to bloom in 1980. 3D printing, also known as additive manufacturing (AM), is a way of creating three dimensional object through layering of materials upon each other with the help of a 3D printer. This technology is seen to be a fast and more cost efficient way of creating. These creative object can be almost any shape or size depending which printer is used. In 1986 did Charles (Chuck) Hull claim to paten the idea and became co funder in the SD Systems Corporation on of the largest manufactures of 3D printers.
The event started with an introduction to 3D printing and the benefit of it. This was held by FebTech. This continued with signing up to the IDE Tinkercad. This so we could virtually create object to print. The task was to develop a weal to a toy car, prepared for one on the table. Through the measurement could you create and design the car after your liking and later on print it. The event of 20 people did end with a rase to see which wheel did better suit the car. My wheel did unfortunately not win. 🙁
This innovative technolog y would make better use of our resources. Cars, guys and event toy have already been created with 3D printing and I consider myself highly lucky to have the opportunity to learn and experience a 3D printer with the help of Maker Space.
