For those who have an interest in 3-D printing, New River Community College is offering a workshop this month.
"Hands on 3-D Printing" will take participants through the steps of manipulating and printing a 3-D file. Students will learn how to manipulate text, edit an existing file, export the printer file and start their own design using SketchUp. Participants will leave the workshop with their own customized 3-D printed object.
The workshop will be held Wednesday, May 10, from 6 to 8 p.m. in 109 Martin Hall at NRCC in Dublin (#4269).
The workshop fee is $40. For online registration, visit http://www.nr.edu/workforce , Classes & Programs, Non Credit Course Offerings and then search the workshop ID number.
NRCC also has 3-D labs open to the public throughout the week. The lab in Dublin is open Tuesdays and Thursdays from 2 to 4 p.m. in 109 Martin Hall. The lab in Christiansburg is open every Monday through Thursday from 2 to 4 p.m. in room 147 at the college's NRV Mall site.
