Learn the basics with a free webinar.
Want to learn 3D printing but not sure where to start? Then this is for you. We have created a FREE crash course where you can learn the basics of 3D printing in under 30 minutes.
This webinar was originally published as part of our ‘lockdown learning sessions’ with FlashForge USA and went out free to thousands of teachers and schools at the start of the pandemic.
In this FREE webinar Phil our teacher founder, will take you through the basics of what 3D printing it, where it is used, and how a 3D printer operates. Also included in the session is a basic Tinkercad tutorial on how to create a simple model to print, along with a slicing lesson using FlashPrint. In the slicing lesson you will learn how to import a model into the slicing software to be sliced into a printable file.

One of the questions we often get asked is ‘will the learnbylayers curriculum work with any 3D printer?’ The answer is YES the curriculum can be used with any machine.
In all our lesson packs we use free software and the lessons are not aligned to any particular brand of 3D printer, so whatever machine you purchase our curriculum can be used with it.
Design your own model with TinkerCAD
In the webinar, Phil explains the basic key knowledge and terminology used in 3D printing. An example is how to slice a model for 3D printing.
Downloading models or designing them yourself is the first step in the process, the critical part is slicing the model into layers so the 3D printers can print the design. This quick tutorial will show you how easy this is.
If you are a teacher or homeschooler looking to start 3D printing then this is a great starting point for you. Click here to unlock the webinar.
