Published on

Schuyler St. Leger (@DocProfSky) gives an overview of three dimensional (3D) printing. He covers various forms of 3D printing and walks through an example going from creating a 3D model to converting the model file to machine code that drives the x/y/z stages of a 3D printer.

His hands-on demonstration uses a MakerBot Thing-O-Matic 3D printer.

This presentation was done at Desert Code Camp on April 2, 2011 at Gilbert-Chandler Community College in Chandler, AZ.
