9-10:15

Industrial 3D Printing in Job Shops: Why It Makes Sense.

This session will look at various applications within a machine shop where 3D printing and machining go hand-in-hand to save time and money.

10:30-11:45

Carbon Fiber & Metal 3D Printing with Markforged.

This session will introduce you to 3D printing in Carbon Fiber and Metal. Rather than waiting weeks and paying thousands of dollars for a part, with Markforged you can 3D print high-performance parts on-premise and in under 24 hours. Print carbon fiber for parts that are as strong as Aluminum and dramatically lighter. For heat tolerance, print with 17-4 Stainless Steel. For other applications, print with Titanium, Aluminum, Kevlar or one of 11 other materials to fit any function.

12:30-1:45

Design for 3D Printing: Tips & Tricks.

This session will highlight 3D Printing tips and tricks that will reduce costs, print time and material while also producing parts the way you want them – on the first try.

Deacon Stone
RCBI

Bio: Deacon Stone is the STEM Education & Maker Programs Coordinator at RCBI. Deacon studied at Ohio University and is an alumnus of Marshall University and Cranbrook Academy of Art. With a background in engineering and a foreground in the arts, he brings a unique vantage point to problem-solving, rapid prototyping and approaches to making. His more than ten years of experience in non-profit enterprise development and administration and contributions to startup and growth companies in West Virginia has instilled an entrepreneurial mindset, along with a commitment to sustainable practices. Deacon believes that entrepreneurship and growth are always within reach while advanced technology affords unprecedented access to scale. While advanced technology is more affordable and available than ever, it should be more accessible. Deacon enjoys bringing advanced approaches to the service of kids from eight to eighty, from arts to industry, and from corporation to community as they take their projects to the next level – no matter the level.

Today’s Maker Workflow in RCBI’s Maker Vault

9-10:15

10:30-11:45

12:30-1:45

RCBI’s Maker Programs offer you the opportunity to access cutting-edge equipment and expert facilitation of your project, as well as programming that connects you to the maker social scene. But what pieces of software, approaches to making and workflows actually accelerate makers on the path from idea to reality? We’ll learn about dimensioning real world to digital and how to 3D design using free and easy open-source tools. From 3D Printing to computer-controlled routing, we’ll walk through workflows and concepts, and create projects to take home – all the while learning how to operate 3D Printers, a Computer-Controlled Router, and a Laser Etcher/Engraver.

From Photo to a 3D Print

9-10:15

12:30-1:45

Have you ever had a project, or a part, that you needed to 3D model, but only had the physical part or just pictures?  There are several ways to go from pictures to a 3D CAD model. In this course, Steve Olson will share a workflow for going from photos to a 3D CAD model and then to a 3D Print. He will start with Autodesk’s ReCap Photo, to go from photos to a 3D mesh model. Then, he will export the model to Fusion 360, where he can edit and clean it up. Once complete, the model can be exported for 3D printing

Have You Met Fusion 360?

10:30-11:45

Fusion 360 is a complete design tool, allowing users to go from idea to fabrication without ever leaving the product, making it the perfect design tool for makers. This class will offer a great opportunity for you to get your first, or second, look at Fusion 360.  Steve Olson will guide participants through a design from idea to fabrication, utilizing Fusion 360’s Modeling, Rendering, and CAM workspaces. Designs will be exported to an STL files for 3D printing.

Cutting Metal with a 4000W Laser

9-10:15

10:30-11:45

12:30-1:45

RCBI’s 4000-watt laser cutter is one of the most popular and versatile pieces of equipment available in the Huntington Advanced Manufacturing Technology Center. Laser cutters can create complex shapes with superior precision and smooth edges from a variety of metals and other materials without the need for tooling. This workshop will focus on converting computer drawings to files compatible with the laser, creating the most effect paths for laser burns, and determining which types of metals are best for certain products.
