This hour-long introduction will seek to answer commons questions:
  • What is 3-D printing?
  • How does it work?
  • How do you get started 3-D printing at the Digital Commons? 
Together, we will explore the underlying processes and technology, survey some of the 3-D modeling and design software freely available for creating objects, discover valuable resources for 3-D printing on the Web, and review the 3-D printing capability available to the public in the Digital Commons.
