***THIS IS PART TWO OF A TWO-PART WORKSHOP. During part one, you will learn basic tools to create a ring with Rhinoceros 3D. During part two, you will learn how to 3D print your model. You can choose to join both or either***

Join jewelry designer and digital fabrication enthusiast Pamela to learn how to create a 3D model of a ring (Part 1) and then get to print it yourself (Part 2).

In Part 2, you’ll become familiar with 3D printing technology and the materials you can use.

You’ll understand how to prepare your 3D model file for printing, how to judge whether a model is printable or not, and how to optimize settings so that you get the best out of your print.

Finally, you’ll get to print* your 3D ring and take it home with you! (You might be able to print one or two, depending on the workshop speed and number of students.)

Even if you didn't join Part 1, you can still join Part 2 and print one of Pamela's models (no customization/modification possible, as this is what we do in Part 1). At the end of Part 2, you will know how to use CURA and set up the 3D printers at Xinfab for your future 3D prints.

*The success of your print largely depends on your 3D model (.STL).

// Your laptop and charger
// Please install Cura (version 15.04) before you come! (download here: )
