3D printing and design classes
Everything you need to know
In this orientation, you will create a 3D file using various types of scanners, and then prepare the file for 3D printing! You will learn the basics of 3D printing technologies and ways of using them creatively, and you will become familiar with MakerLabs' resources available for member and drop-in use. This orientation is ideal for artists, artisans, designers, architects, engineers, product developers, industrial designers, and anyone else looking to gain an understanding of additive manufacturing, scanning, and rapid prototyping. Some familiarity with 3D design software is helpful, but not necessary for this course.Learn the basics of capturing a 3D file using various 3D scanner types and how to prepare the file for 3D printing.

MakerLabs is Vancouver's largest makerspace. We provide the tools, space and know-how to allow anybody to create almost anything. MakerLabs (makerspace + fablab) was born out of a vision to create the best possible space for making. MakerLabs is made up of 42,000 square feet of workshops, studios and common areas. The communal working areas include: a wood shop, metal shop, CNC router table, laser cutters, sewing machines, and an electronics area. Each tool and work area has a corresponding safety and orientation class. A strong maker community has been cultivated at MakerLabs, where we exchange knowledge, help each other, and collaborate. MakerLabs has communal areas for working, hanging out, and cooking. We promote an open concept with our private studio spaces, so makers can be inspired by what is going on around them.
