SPI528: The TechShop Experience

New or interested in the shop? Don't know where to start on your TechShop journey? Join us for The TechShop Experience and dip your toes in the TechShop community!

Open to both members and nonmembers, this is a great introductory session that enables participants to try out TechShop's 3D printers and laser cutters, our most popular machines. In addition to seeing the equipment in action, you will also become familiar with the two most popular software programs used in the shop: Autodesk 123Design (a 3D modeling program) and Adobe Illustrator (a vector-making program).

In this 2-hour class, you will begin with a thorough tour of the shop. Your guide will answer your questions and provide an overview of TechShop rules, procedures, classes, policies, member-run meet-ups, and ways you can be involved in the TechShop community.

You’ll see what is possible with our 3D printers as we cover the basics of how printers work, resources that are available for 3D printing at TechShop, and how to make a 3D model using 123Design.

Following the 3D printing demo, each participant will be able to select a design they or create text to laser etch a dog tag! The instructor will answer questions about lasering as well as share the science behind the laser cutter.

Participants who complete the class as new or current TechShop members (either because they were already members prior to class or as a result of purchasing a membership during class) will receive one Choice coupon code for a free class.

One free class coupon per member.
