3D Design for 3D Printing Day Workshop

Unit 5, Sharpes Mill, White Cross, LA1 4XS
Lancaster and Morecambe Makers


This is an opportunity to learn how to design your own 3D models and plans to be printed on a 3D printer or cut on a laser cutter or milling machine. There will be five short talks and demos at the start of the day, each introducing a different 3D design package. After that there will be time for questions and general discussion.

If you bring your own laptop, there will be time later on to work on a design of your own, with help from others if you want it.

The event is hosted by Lancaster and Morecambe Makers at their space on the White Cross industrial estate (Unit 5, Sharpes Mill, White Cross, LA1 4XS). 

See for more information. Anyone is welcome, although under 16s must be accompanied by an adult. We ask for reasonable donations for any materials you use.
