In the 3D Printing Basic course, you will print a 3D solid model from publicly available STL files. You will learn how 3D printer works, materials and filaments, calibration techniques, and fine-tuning printer settings.

After successful completion of the course assignment, you will receive 3D badge.

The course does not include 3D model design. To design 3D models, we have 3D CAD Basic course.

The class takes 2 hours including a 10 minutes break.


The course is suitable for anyone who are interested in 3D printing with no experience in the past.

Even if you don’t know how to design 3D models, you can enjoy 3D printing without designing anything.


Participants must be over 14 years.

Course objectives

Upon completion of the course, participants will:

  • be able to print publicly available 3D model data on Internet, such as Thingiverse
