3D printing is an exciting technology that allows makers to create objects from spools of plastic or vats of resin. Fused-deposition modeling (FDM) 3D printers are cheap, versatile, and capable machines that can create everything from board game pieces to prosthetic limbs. 3D printers are becoming more and more common in the world, so it’s important to know how to use them. In FDM101, you’ll learn all about what FDM 3D printing is, how it works, what its strengths (and weaknesses) are, and more.

Prusa printers stand out from the crowd of desktop FDM printers because of their accessibility, ease of use, and open-source hardware. They’re also considered one of the best and most affordable FDM printers you can get. Since 2017, Prusa machines have consistently collected global acclaim from the international maker community, including best desktop 3D printer for three years running. By the end of the 60-minute workshop, you'll have everything you need to begin 3D printing on right away on these incredible machines.
