New Adafruit Tutorial! Skill Badge Guide: 3D Printing in the Learning System #3dprinting

3D Printing Skill Badge

Maker and educator Adam Kemp has been porting over some of the great skill badge curriculum he created for the Adafruit Hackerscout Academy resources to the Adafruit Learning System, adding additional training tools along the way. (Such as his Skill Badge tutorial for the Raspberry Pi.)

Wanna earn your own 3D Printing Skill Badge? Learn about FFF/FDM 3D Printers, the most popular method of 3D printing and then reward yourself with a 3D Printing badge or sticker!

From the tutorial:

The 3D printer uses a process called fused deposition modeling to construct a solid object from a virtual model. This process involves the controlled deposition of a molten feed stock, typically ABS or PLA plastic, onto a build surface where layer-by-layer the model emerges. Each 3D printer features a series of motors to move the three axis and the extruder, and a controller to move the motors and manage the build process…

3D printing – Skill badge, iron-on patch: You can 3D print! Adafruit offers a fun and exciting “badges” of achievement for electronics, science and engineering. We believe everyone should be able to be rewarded for learning a useful skill, a badge is just one of the many ways to show and share. This is the “I learned how to 3D print” badge for use with educators, classrooms, workshops, Maker Faires, TechShops, Hackerspaces, Makerspaces and around the world to reward beginners on their skill building journey!
