College offers 3D printing workshops

Students, faculty, staff and community members have the opportunity to earn a Fusion Deposition Modeling badge in the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) Center at Madison College. Participants will learn about applications and uses for 3D printing as well as the basics of producing a printable model.

There are several different methods of 3D printing, but the most widely used is a process known as Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM). FDM printers use a thermoplastic filament, which is heated to its melting point and then extruded, layer by layer, to create a three dimensional object.

Upcoming sessions:


These sessions are for anyone interested in learning about 3D printing. Registration is required. Space is limited to 12 participants at each session.
