Intro to 3D Printing and Design for Health Sciences & Medicine

Introducing the second Health Sciences and Medicine focused 3D Printing Workshop in association with the uOttawa Richard L’Abbé Makerspace! This workshop will be similar to the first, but with more time spent on medical model design.

Similar to our traditional 3D printing workshops, but with a focus on how the technology can be applied to multiple fields in Health Sciences and Medicine. This is still a beginner level workshop; no prior experience needed.

We will cover how to get started with 3D printing, as well as, share with you how to start using the 3D printers available at the Health Sciences Library, RGN Campus.

Necessary software will be available on library computers, but if you'd like to use your own hardware, please install the two programs we'll need: Makerbot Desktop and Cura.
