Most of us have a hectic workweek. Even if you aren’t on your feet and moving around constantly, an overwhelming sense of exhaustion can often set in by Friday afternoon. And while you may be thinking of sleeping super late, doing the couch potato thing, and ordering in for every meal during your two precious days, it really is much better for your mind and spirit to get out and do something stimulating. And what could be better than attending a class with like-minded tech-curious makers in the making?
If you live in Orange County, you can seize both a Saturday and Sunday either to seriously take your mind off of other things—or use this time to improve on honing your skills that you are using at home, the office, or both. Offered by Airwolf 3D, an upcoming Weekend 3D Printing Workshop is the sixth installment of such classes. You might be especially interested if you are:
- An educator who would benefit from working knowledge of an Airwolf 3D Printer
- IT maintenance staff for school districts
- An Airwolf 3D reseller
Topics for each day will include the following.
Saturday: Tinkercad, slicing, operating the printer and tips and tricks for successful prints.
Sunday: Maintenance subjects such as hands-on lubrication, brush exchange, intimate look at electronics and wear items.
Sunday: Troubleshooting, with hands on simulated repair of a jammed hot end, actual nozzle replacement, improving print jobs, close review of user error, example parts and others.
Final Test: Take a final test. Airwolf will grade and then provide scores onsite, as well as mailing out a Certificate of Completion of Intermediate 3D Printer Training to each attendee.
The workshop also offers the added bonus of being onsite at the manufacturing facility, meaning you have access to sample parts, tools, printers, experienced personnel, and more. Those attending training will even enjoy a tour of the assembly process. This allows you to see the complex, inner workings of the 3D printer but at the same time gives a sense of how easy it is to maintain, with most repairs completed in 15 minutes.
Those in attendance will be designated their own Airwolf 3D printers for the workshop, which is limited to 15 seats over the two days.
“Lunch will be provided to students throughout the 3D Printing Workshop so bring your appetites, curiosity, and eagerness to learn,” states the Airwolf team.
The workshop costs $895 for the two-day workshop, which is held at: Airwolf 3D Headquarters, 130 McCormick Avenue, Suite 105 Costa Mesa, CA 92626. Find out more about making reservations here, as well as reading about potential lodging, shuttles, and noting the corporate booking ID.
Airwolf 3D is a popular 3D manufacturer that we’ve enjoyed following, reporting on programs and products such as their convenient 3D printer leasing program, and of course their latest release with the Axiom 2 3D printer, offering dual extruders and multi-material capabilities.
