Mastering 3D Printing in the Classroom, Library, and Lab (Technology in Action)

Learn how to manage and integrate the technology of 3D printers in the classroom, library, and lab. With this book, the authors give practical, lessons-learned advice about the nuts and bolts of what happens when you mix 3D printers, teachers, students, and the general public in environments ranging from K-12 and university classrooms to libraries, museums, and after-school community programs.
Take your existing programs to the next level with Mastering 3D Printing in the Classroom, Library, and Lab. Organized in a way that is readable and easy to understand, this book is your guide to the many technology options available now in both software and hardware, as well as a compendium of practical use cases and a discussion of how to create experiences that will align with curriculum standards. 
You’ll examine the whole range of working with a 3D printer, from purchase decision to curriculum design. Finally this book points you forward to the digital-fabrication future current students will face, discussing how key skills can be taught as cost-effectively as possible.

Mastering Desktop 3D Printing with Simplify3D – Training DVD

Number of Videos:3 hours – 35 lessons
Ships on: DVD-ROM
User Level:Beginner
When the average person uses a desktop 3D printer to make finished physical objects, they are overwhelmed with decisions on profiles, settings, speeds, and materials. This, says 3D printing expert Richard Horne, almost always results in failure.

In this course, Horne explains everything you need to know about using Simplify3D to produce the highest quality desktop 3D printed models without wasting materials or your time. Understanding the Simplify3D software is the main focus of this course, but the information covered is useful to anyone seriously interested in desktop 3D printing.

  • Master Simplify3D – the 3D printing processing software compatible with most desktop 3D printers
  • Learn to import, scale, rotate, preview, slice, and repair 3D models before you print
  • Understand how to tune and calibrate desktop 3D printers for best results and speeds
  • Learn the essential settings for different types of materials and different types of objects
  • Identify and correct problems in the desktop 3D printing process that waste materials and time
  • Understand settings for layering, support, dual extrusion, Gcode, nozzle sizing, and more
  • Gain the confidence in 3D printing required to experiment with new materials, settings, and complex model printing

Richard Horne, better known as RichRap in the global 3D printing community, has worked with 3D printing for decades. He’s been a developer, innovator, and designer with the RepRap project since 2009, and serves on the Advisory Board of the The 3D Printing Association. He co-wrote the 3D Printing for Dummies book, and blogs about 3D printing at www.richrap.blogspot.com.
