Overview

Sign up for this class to get hands-on training using the FormLabs resin printers (the Rocklin Hacker Lab now has a Form2 Resin Printer, as well as the Form1+).  You will have an opportunity to learn to turn a vat of goop into a surprisingly elegant prototype or model of whatever you printed.

Prototyping on 3D printers is surprisingly easy and takes very little time, compared with traditional manufacturing methods.  For manufacturers wishing to develop new products, it is a great tool.  3D printing offers many options that conventional manufacturing lacks.

Reminder to Hacker Lab Members: this class is required to use the FormLabs resin printer, either at the Rocklin or Sacramento Midtown locations.
