3D Printer workshop




The Makecourse and the USF IEEE Student Chapter are offering a USF Engineering 3D Printing Workshop! Over a two day period participants will learn how to 3D print using their very own Monoprice Maker select V2  3D printer.  The 3D printer comes with the workshop and the student will take it home afterwards as well. Sessions are taught by Mechanical Engineering Ph.D. student Justin Nussbaum and Electrical Engineering Masters student TJ Ross who are 3D printing experts with several years of experience of printing and utilizing 3D printing for their research. This workshop is open to all USF students and employees, and the public.  The Makecourse and 3D printer workshops are separate courses that compliment one another.

  • Heavy duty, steel body, fully assembled Monoprice Maker Select V2
  • Spool of PLA with your choice of color
  • Basic Printing tools and supplies
  • Covered topics:
    • Create and Modify 3D Models for printing
    • Optimize your print Quality
    • Methods on how to print complex shapes
    • Some of the basic science and physics behind 3D printing
