3D printing technology is becoming more affordable and user friendly. In this class, we will demonstrate a method of creating relief plates using fused filament fabrication from a 3D printer. We will discuss the software and the workflow from image to plate, plate registration, and layering. Each student will create one plate from the 3D printer. Students will need to bring a jpeg image on a flash drive to the first day of class to work from. These relief plates will be printed in the traditional manner. Limited to 6 students.
