3D Printing Classes & Workshops

It’s Possible with 3D Printing

3D printing is a whole new way of solving problems. Combine your inspiration, idea or concept with a new digital makerspace playground. We provide easy access to the software and equipment you need to ideate, develop and fabricate. Our community-based digital learning environment, welcomes entrepreneurs, developers, robotic teams, makers, teachers and students gather to learn, explore, experiment and create. This new age of enlightenment is a period of innovation and invention. Our makerspace is the modern DIY hands-on learning environment developing skills students need for their future. These skills include communication, concept development, innovation, critical thinking, project management, product development, and collaboration. It’s the fitness club for your brain. Your possibilities are limitless with 3D modeling and printing.

3D DESIGN FOR 3D PRINTING
  • From napkin to reality, our best practices for design elements for 3D printing will be shared as you will incorporate flanges, holes, ribs, fastener elements and other details to part models.
  • This advanced design course will have you transform a model that incorporates features listed plus springs, bearings, and living hinges. After class you will 3D print your model.
$65.00, 65
3D ASSEMBLY MODELING
  • This hands-on course will challenge your experience and increase your involvement, as you will place components in the assembly environment, ground and constrain parts in the assembly, diagnose assembly problems and resolve issues.
  • Focus will expand your understanding of the differences between Top-Down and Bottom-Up workflow.
$65.00, 65
3D DESIGN ADVANCED PART MODELING
  • For the experienced Makers, you will use advanced work points, axes and planes, use Pattern, Mirror, Hole, Fillet and Chamfer commands to refine your 3D model.
  • At this level, you’ll generate gear sets and prepare them for 3D printing.
  • Exposure to best practices for strength, aesthetics and function of 3D printed parts will be explored.
$65.00, 65
3D DESIGN BASICS
  • You will be introduced to Inventor Sketches including origin planes, creating 2D sketch geometry, trim, extend and dimensions.  This course will also expose you to work planes, drawing constraints and degrees of freedom.
  • Begin to transform 2D sketches by using the Extrude, Rotate, Sweep and Loft commands to construct basic 3D models. You’ll then repeat until your desired part is achieved.
  • This is the class that you learn how to edit features, use the End of Part marker and save the part for 3D printing.
$65.00, 65
3D PRINTER OVERVIEW & FILE PREP
  • Start learning about the different components that make the 3D printer operate, how to perform required adjustments and how to diagnose common problems including extruder disassembly for unclogging.
  • We’ll share best practices for part orientation, infill, support, temperatures, and print bed adhesion.
  • You’ll download an object (or supply your own) and prepare it for 3D printing. This will include learning how to send the file to the 3D printer, load filament, prepare the machine, 3D print the object and then extract the finished object from the 3D printer.
$55.00, 55
Safety 1st Orientation

Mandatory and Included with all Memberships

  • You will understand general rules of conduct and safety procedures for the entire makerspace. You will learn to practice required clean-up, tool & material storage, and waste disposal & recycling.
  • We will share how to create positive dynamics while working with others and project/time management including how to schedule machine time.
  • Upon completion you will earn certification and access to the makerspace.

LEARN. MAKE. PRINT.

Creation Labs offers comprehensive instructional classes and events by experts geared to your needs. These classes deliver hands-on-training with the software and equipment to build skills. The classes align to STEAM curriculum (integrating science, technology, engineering, arts, and math) and will accommodate specific needs. Your experience will empower you to make your ideas become a reality. Each student finds reward in creating their own final product.

To prepare for an upcoming robotics competition, show at a Maker Event, or develop a prototype for your online business, Creation Labs is the right environment, community, facility and capability for your success.

Memberships are flexible to meet your needs with no heavy financial commitment. We make it easier and more affordable to gain access to Maker Space. All members must complete a Basic Safety class prior to using any equipment.

Our staff will be on-hand at all times to assist, provide input and reinforce training.

On-site training for 3D Printers and 3D Design software is also available.  We can show you how to operate your own machine, how to perform minor maintenance and how to make your next great idea come to life by designing it yourself.  We also do presentations at schools, libraries, scout troops, and other facilities.
