What is Buildclass?

Buildclass is a workshop series that is dedicated to supporting advanced education and R&D in 3D Printing.

In Buildclass, participants build their own 3D printer over the course of two days, all the while developing an advanced skill set in digital fabrication. Workshops are led by machine engineers and designers.

Instead of considering the 3D Printer as an applicance, participants in Buildclass are led to use this technology as a  tool which can be honed with skill and as an outlet for creative problem solving. Buildclass is an essential foundation for those who are new to 3D Printing, and a masterclass for those who are looking to take their knowledge to the next level.

The workshop provides all necessary software, direction, and resources to begin 3D printing, to maintain the printer, modify, and become contributors to the open source community.

What people say about Buildclass

“Anyone who wants to understand 3d printing would do well to start with a Buildclass workshop [ … ] One of the central elements of Maker culture is being able to make your own tools. Buildclass starts you off with making your own tools, learning from a team of people who are great at it and love teaching, and who want to make it possible for you to be real Makers, not just consumers.”
