Introduction to 3D Printing – Talk & Open Lab

This event will be a primer on proper use of the 3D printer, an overview of key software, and best practices. In particular, we will focus on printing for quantity, and plating your pieces.

We will be creating pieces for an old board game that was produced in the 80s.

The board game has hexagon tiles with plastic pieces that occupy one or more hexagons. We will be reprinting the ‘map’, based on the size that the 3D printed pieces come out.

You can grab the files, and we will add instructions as we go along here:

Be aware, that the files available now are not yet to scale, and we need to change the files to ‘finalize’ them before 3D printing. You may want to wait till after the event to grab the files.
