A little about the Instructors:
Jeremy and Isaiah started their 3D printing journey here at the Mankato Makerspace 3 years ago, first participating in Print Club where they learned the basics. Since then, they have amassed extensive knowledge and acquired six 3D printers of various brands and styles.
“Great intro, was so fun and informative. I was a little nervous going into class, not being particularly tech savvy myself, but Isaiah and Jeremy did such an amazing job explaining everything in a way I could understand, which kept the class atmosphere very relaxed and encouraging. I was pleasantly surprised that we could scroll through the program and choose what we would print that night. Would highly recommend this class to anyone starting out in this creative outlet.”
