This course is aimed at those who wish to incorporate this technology into their habitual work as a medium and resource for their productions.

3D printing is a disruptive technology that has an immense field of application, and we can take advantage to empower our work and that of our community:

Anchors, supporting parts, joints for our installations

Stands for sculptures

Lost pots for a mixing table

Hanging hooks for a rack

Lens caps for camera lens

Templates for cutting and measuring

Support for the projector

Modular building systems

Boxes for our electronics prototypes

Parts and teaching material for our students

Molds, pots and pans, miscellaneous

Stuff in general, and whatever shape we can think of.


To know the technology, its scope and limitations.

To apply 3D printing to a specific project.

To use different modeling software options (OpenScad – Tinkercad).

To achieve to design pieces of medium complexity.

To learn the basic operation of a 3D printer and print the modeled parts.


Additive digital manufacturing. 3d print. Five minutes of history. Hacking and planned obsolescence. Social and economic impact. Examples of application oriented to artistic projects. Different printing technologies. FDM technology. Functioning. FDM printer types. Printing materials. Rapid prototyping. Stages, workflow and practical example. Scope, limitations and recommendations for the use and possible assembly of our own printer. Production strategies. Think about your own project. 3D modeling. OpenScad and Tinkercad modeling software. Parametrization. Slicing. Repositories. Share our models with the community. Future and perspectives.

Each participant will develop a printing project applied throughout the meetings, which we will print towards the end of the course.
