Have you ever thought about building your own 3D printer but you don't know how to get started? In this weekend workshop you will build a portable 3D printer and learn the basics of 3D printing with Lucio, the founder of XinFab!

Plus, your printer is a portable one that you can take anywhere with you.

Aside from taking your newest pet for a walk, you will learn some key maker skills. After all, building a machine is the best way to understand how machines work by far! After the workshop, you can become a 3D printing leader in your district, small business, xiaoqu, or basement! This workshop is a unique chance to become a self sufficient 3D printing master in just two days.

No previous experience in electronics or 3D printing is required.

ABOUT THE TEACHER

Lucio Pentagna is the founder of Xinfab. An allround maker and 3d printer specialist, Lucio is an entrepreneur, lawyer, CEO, sailor and farmer. He started opening up machines and building new ones from a very early age. Aside from making drones, 3D printers, CNCs and all sorts of electronics, he also set up the entire computer network of one of the companies he used to run when he was only 18 (and back when nobody knew how to do that) and most recently built his own house (!!) in Portugal. Lucio moved from Brazil to Shanghai five years ago and found the fablab, though he now lives in Portugal with his wife and three kids. From time to time he comes back to Shanghai to pay Xinfab a visit and build cool things for us here.
