This lesson will enable your classes to really understand the technical aspects of slicing a model. From learning about support material to the difference between print speed and travel speed, your students will be on their way to becoming fully confident in 3D Printing slicing techniques.
They will also learn how to change the printer type and how to add a custom printer to the slicing software. Furthermore learners will understand how to use custom features in CURA allowing them to gain in indepth knowledge of the slicing process taking them beyond a basic level. Some of the concept students will learn include print speed, wall thickness, gradual infill steps, and build plate adhesion and travel speed. The aim being to teach learners to have full control over the slicing process during 3D printing.
This lesson comes with a fully editable powerpoint and video tutorials on how to create an engineering drawing of their models that were completed in the design challenge. This lesson forms the penultimate lesson of the Intermediate 3D Printing course and students will sit an assessment in lesson 13.
