SLA (stereolithography) 3D printers were actually the first type of 3D printer ever invented! However only in the last few years have they become safe, accessible, and affordable to use. SLA 3D printers do not use a spool of plastic filament, and instead have a vat of liquid resin. Parts produced using SLA 3D printers can be super high detail and can be made from a variety of materials. This workshop will include methods for finding and creating models, setting up the printer for a job, using the 3D printer slicer software, and safety considerations while using SLA 3D printers. Upon completion of the workshop, participants will have all the skills necessary to use the Maker Hub's SLA 3D printers. Note: Close-toed shoes must be worn in the Maker Hub. Please see the Maker Hub Policies and Procedures webpage for all Maker Hub rules.
