Important Information

It is strongly recommended that you download and install the Lulzbot version of cura (links below) so you can follow along during this class.
  • For Windows users, click here
  • For Mac users, click here
  • For Linux users, click here, and figure it out (we suggest using the app-image version over the distro's repository versions)

Since this class is being held remotely, after completing the session you will be given a link to sign up for an in-person final certification that should take about 30minutes.

This class and the final in-person certification are required to use the Tazbot 6 and MonoPrice 3D printers at Hacker Lab. There are no other recquired pre-requisites for the class, however familiarity with 3D modelling software would be helpful for future use of the 3D Printers.
