Here’s what some of our happy participants had to say about our 3D printing courses:
Loved it! Had no idea at the start of the day, am now printing an iPhone case!
Excellent course, I definitely learned a lot more than I thought I would. I most enjoyed learning by trial and error and asking questions relevant to my own design versus listening to more general information I wasn’t yet using.
