3D printing and materials
The workshop begins with an overview of 3D printing methods; comparing and contrasting the main methods of 3D printing, the options, benefits and costs involved. After the basics of the machines and materials as such, the workshop goes into the heart of 3D printing possibilities with material manipulation.
On the second day the workshop focuses on the additive manufacturing of extruded filaments where machine settings, slicers and density options are explored to see and generate different types of results achievable with the same base materials, particularly for flexible filaments.
Participants will be able to experience material manipulation from both the hardware and software aspects, obtaining key knowledge and resources in determining the best materic outcome for outsoles, insoles, uppers/textiles and even flexible footwear.
Sample packets of materials with the main examples shown and discussed during the workshop are available.
