Posted · Interviews with starting users. You?

Ultimaker is developing a 3D print Learning environment. In the next months we will develop e-learnings on the basics of 3D printing. 
We are recruiting interviewees with little or no 3D printing experience to discuss your (learning) needs.
Is your new year's resolution to learn 3D printing and do you have 30 minutes available on Thursday the 10th or Friday the 11th of January? 


Please sign up here


Do you have any questions? Please feel free to post them below! 


All the best, 
SandervanG & Sanna (projectmanager e-learning @ Ultimaker)

What about people that are having some success, but no real understanding of why? Or, why things can go sideways when it always worked before?


And, I really hope there is something about what all these crazy terms mean......

    At first we will focus on who want to start or just start using 3D printers. So the content will be focused on the basics. We will most certainly explain all the crazy terms;))

    Do you know anyone who wants to start or just started with 3D printing? If yes: it would be great if you could connect them with us!

    Extremely new... Can turn the printer on and print off a simply file SOMETIMES. Other are abject failure with things sliding on the bed the filament not adhering lots of marks in prints prints failing to print at all!

    Seems I will fit in here very nicely.  Currently I am waiting on the delivery of my 3D Printer so I have been looking around at different sites  for basic information.  My printer is not made by Ultimaker however,  I hope for the most part information is still going to be helpful. I am using FREECAD, CURA 3.6.0.  I do have a background in geometric design so I have designed my first project, hopefully it will actually print out like it should.  Cross your fingers.

    Understanding your needs and wishes will help us design a better learning solution.
    We made a google form with some questions relating to the way you like to learn about 3D printing. If you could fill this out, that would be great! You can find the form here: https://goo.gl/forms/CA7tUBjZYqtwNn3n1
