The participants of the 3D printing stream will study basic principles of 3D printing: working with CAD models, scanning objects and installing a 3D printer for multifunctional details and prototypes production. The classes will be supplemented with multidisciplinary examples of additive manufacturing applications. During the second and third phases of the School the participants will work on the cross-disciplinary projects in collaboration with students from Smart Cities and Applied Computer Science streams.
Review of additive manufacturing technologies
Review of actual used 3D personal printers: Materials (type of filaments and thermoplastics), Size of potential printed products (limits); File formats.
Review of programs (soft) for a defining process parameters. Main basic parameters.
Preparation for a printing: how to start; how to install; how to open STL file; how to set parameters; PrintBed levelling, how to prepare the printing surface, ability of support plane
Post-processing: cleaning, painting, polishing, etc.
3D Printing Parts without a 3D CAD Model. A working knowledge of 3D Scanning for reverse engineering as well as 3D designing your own simple 3D object from scratch. Scanning any object with Xbox Kinect or your camera (photogrammetry).
