Course Description

In this fast-paced and jam-packed camp, you will learn skills in digital fabrication, materials selection, 3D model design, and model preparation for 3D printing, but you will also learn so much more. You will learn how to design and build 3D printers and CNC machines from scratch by building your very own open-source 3D printer. Discover how the mechanical inner workings of the frame, motion system, motors, electronics, and firmware work in concert to enable your printer produce amazing parts. At the end of the camp, you will not only go home with a 3D printer, but with the knowledge of how to fix it, maintain it, upgrade it, or even build an entirely new printer of your own design. The ability to use hand tools like screwdrivers and pliers is required for this camp.
