My first class with +Whosa whatsis on Lynda.com has just been released, "Additive Manufacturing: Optimizing 3D Prints."

Lynda.com classes are behind a paywall, but they have free trials! Many schools also have subscriptions.

The class on Lynda.com: https://www.lynda.com/CAD-tutorials/Additive-Manufacturing-Optimizing-3D-Prints/618717-2.html

Some of it is also available via LinkedInLearning:

Excited that our new book (#6 in collaboration with +Whosa whatsis) is now out. If you want some fun stuff to do this summer with your 3D printer, how about a few gravity wave models? Publisher's link below, but also available on Amazon and other big booksellers.
