Were you intrigued by MoMath’s recent Math Encounters talk on 3D printing, featuring Laura Taalman? Do you want to learn to make your own 3D prints? Now, you can!

The National Museum of Mathematics is kicking off a series of 3D print workshops with a pair of two-hour introductory-level sessions providing instruction for creating a 3D printed design, as well as the opportunity to print your own 3D model.  Attendees will participate in groups of one to three people.  Each group will share one computer and share in the creation of one design.  Each group must either bring a laptop, or reserve the use of a MoMath computer.   These sessions will introduce participants to interactive 3D modeling software, to sending a design to a 3D printer, and to the 3D printing process.  If you can’t make it to an open session, join the waitlist to ensure that more classes will be created.

Register for the September 14 (3 pm – 5 pm) Introductory 3D printing workshop (waitlist only)

Register for the September 17 (7 pm – 9 pm) Introductory 3D printing workshop


Dr. Laura Taalman, a professor at James Madison University, is joining the Museum as MoMath’s mathematician-in-residence for the coming year.  Space in these workshops is limited, and sessions are expected to fill quickly, so don’t delay.  Register now, and lock in your opportunity to be among the first to enter a new dimension, only at MoMath.
