Module 2: Operating 3D Printers

I3DL™ Module 2: Operating 3D Printers


At a glance

A 3D Printers is a complete system when both Hardware and Software correctly work together. However the quality of 3D printed parts does not only depend on the quality of the system, but rather depends on the expertise the Persons operating them.

Very often we hear stories that an experienced user get very good prints with a low cost printer, while an expensive 3D Printer does not necessarily deliver high quality parts.

In this modules, you will learn the basics of working with 3d printers, and how to get the best results from systems available to you.
