3D printing is gaining popularity every day. With the wide range of possibilities that the technology provides, it’s important that it becomes more accessible for nearly everyone. That’s why Museum of Design Atlanta (MODA) organized classes for kids, families and adults.
Those user-friendly workshops provide a clear and easy introduction with 3D printing. A MODA Instructor will show adult participants how to create and alter simple shapes and symbols in a 3D design software which is easy to work with so as to create objects. The instructors will explain and demonstrate you the basics of 3D printing. If you wish, you may have the object that you created 3D printed on the Makerbot Replicator 2 Desktop 3D Printer. The objects will be ready in a couple of days after the class because of the print times.
