Flash Cards to Learn 3D Printing and Lasercutting

These flash cards (in German) help you understand two key fabrication processes in a Fab Lab: 3D printing and lasercutting. They are based on over 10 years of experience running and explaining these processes to visitors with a broad variety of backgrounds in our Fab Lab.

The making of these flash cards was part of our Personal Photonics project and funded by the BMBF.

Printed sets are now available for purchase from Amazon, through booksellers, and from the publisher, Bombini Verlag. The PDF for the 3D printing flash cards is available for free.

Press Reviews

"[Das Set] eignet sich damit etwa dazu, um es Einsteigern in die Hand zu drücken, die das erste Mal in einem FabLab stehen und sich für 3D-Druck interessieren, denn es beantwortet die üblichen ersten Fragen systematisch: Was sind Infill und Support, Raft und Brim, welche Software braucht man, welches Material kommt zum Einsatz und wie bearbeitet man es nach?"
