3D printing is being quickly adopted in health sciences and healthcare for both educational, research, and clinical purposes. In this workshop you will learn where to find and download 3D model files online, and learn the steps to take to ensure that the file can actually be printed including scaling and checking for non-manifold geometry issues. The workshop will also provide an introduction to how to operate 3D printers - Makerbot Replicator 2X and Afinia H480 - which you can use at the HS/HSL Innovation Space.

Tutorials

GitHub is a web service that provides authors control of their work history and makes sharing and publishing information online easy. In this workshop you will learn to use GitHub to solve problems like struggling with clumsy file-naming conventions for documents that change over time, or keeping track of updates to multiple files by multiple team members. You will also learn to use GitHub for finding and sharing information, and to publish a personal academic portfolio (so bring a selfie if you have one!).
