The 3D Printer qualification process:
Prior to the class – Please review the videos on our website Certification Resource Materials page (look for the digital Fab section) here BEFORE you attend your hands-on qualification. The manual is for reference, you do not need to read the complete manual before attending the class. Do not take the quiz until after you have attended the hands-on portion of the qualification.
Day 1 hands-on – plan on attending 2.5 hours the first day.
Day 2 – Practicum – The next week will be your practicum with the facilitator (the practicum is essential to qualify for becoming a Forge member, you may take the class without the practicum if you choose UNLESS you want it for qualifying for membership).
The practicum can take up to 30-45 minutes to complete. Practicum is where you will show you are proficient and confident to use the machine by yourself. It is required that you complete the practicum the next week after your class
Quiz – you can take the quiz after your hands-on or at your practicum appointment.
