Advanced Printing Course

Goal: Finish the printers we built as a club Fall 2018. Will be teaching multiple topics especially about special optional parts. Offered in a similar structure as a class with a once-a-week meeting where the members will focus on a different subcategory of 3D printing each week.

Results: The team went over basic Solidworks design, G-Code, part inventory, and the Finders' extruder system. We plan to continue to offer this internal course next year and hope to improve the overall experience from what we learned.

What we liked:

  • Design experience: Solidworks
  • Learned GCODE: Used it to draw letters
  • Learned the Finder’s extruder system
  • Part inventory

Future Improvements:

  • Slack communication
  • Inconsistent meeting times
  • Equipment delays
  • Planning
