The Pier 9 Workshop is excited to share our full roster of Machine Training Curriculum on Instructables. Each class was developed over 5 years of hands-on collaboration with industry experts. We hope the knowledge we've gathered here will help any level of user be successful in a workshop. Even if you are not an Instructables member, free PDF downloads of all our machine manuals are available here.

The Objet Connex 500 is a polyjet 3D printer that works by spraying tiny droplets of liquid resin, which are rolled flat and cured with UV light. The Connex 500 prints at an extremely high resolution and can print in multiple materials at once, making it capable of creating much more accurate and complex parts than most other 3D printers on the market today.

For a deeper dive into the process of 3D printing from scans and 3D modeled parts check out the all the free Instructables 3D printing Classes.

This class is not currently accepting new enrollments. The Classes feature will be retiring soon, but class content will remain accessible.

Autodesk Technology Center San Francisco is a hub for research, development, and demonstration of new manufacturing technologies and workflows relating to configurable microfactories.
