We are planning to do workshops and courses few a while now and as we are starting to get settled in our new office, we think it's time for this to start happening. So for now we have two workshops available for enrolling. To enroll, just purchase the product associated with the workshop you like. We will send an email with confirmation soon after.
This two hour hands on workshop provides information on techniques to maintain, troubleshoot and upgrade your RepRap 3D printer. We will focus specifically on failure mechanisms, pre-emptive failure detection, and methods for improving your machine's performance and reliability. Individual troubleshooting issues may also be addressable within the time period as long as detailed description of the problems are provided in advance.
Learn the pros and cons of some of the most prevalent 3D printer slicer software and how to utilize their features and toolpathing characteristics to improve print appearance, strength and overall success. We will focus specifically on the effect of critical slicing parameters on the print, their relationship to your firmware settings, and the process of evaluating the resulting tool path prior to printing in order to identify and mitigate possible issues. Familiarly with firmware is not required.
Last week the first session was a big success, around 12 people showed up! Some people looking for a 3D printer, some bringing printer stuff with them and some more into general electronics. It was also nice to seems some kids interested in technology. This week we are closed due to Ascension Day (Hemelvaartsdag), which is a national holiday in The Netherlands. Next week a new session is planned. For people who can't wait another week, you can also meet us at 'Repair Cafe Nootdorp' https://nl-nl.facebook.com/RepairCafePijnackerNootdorp
Local RepRap users are invited to attend RepRapWorld's weekly Print & Pizza meet up every Thursday evening at our shop in Nootdorp. Bring your latest 3D prints, questions and innate curiosity to share with us and others in the DIY community. Entrance is free; and the optional dinner (eg: pizza) is a flat 10 Euros (€5 for Children <14) . Doors open at 6:30, but please arrive no later than 7pm to get on the dinner ordering list.
