3D Printing Workshop

I taught the first “Introduction to 3D Printing” workshop held in the UVic Libraries Digital Scholarship Commons (DSC) on April 6th. All of the 14 library staff who participated learned how to prepare 3D models from the Thingiverse.com website, and by the end of the workshop submitted files ready for printing on our MakerBot 3D printer. Models prepared for printing ranged from a Star Trek badge, a bird model, to a headphone stand for Music & Media.

I’ll be teaching workshop again later in April for other interested staffe, and another workshop on 3D Design will be offered shortly after that. Students will be invited to participate in the workshops once the DSC furniture arrives. For a list of upcoming DSC workshops, checkout this list of events: http://oac.uvic.ca/dsc/workshops/
