On the right you’ll see some examples of what I’ve 3D printed at sudo room, having learned all my skills at sudo room, from sudoers.

  • 3D Printing Theory
  • Sketchup
    • Navigation
    • Basic Shapes
    • Shape Manipulation
    • Advanced Shapes
      • Exporting
  • Slic3r slicing software (in a minor way)
  • Repetier Host Printer Software (in a minor way)
  • How to manually adjust the 3d printer in times of crisis.


  • Come with a laptop with sketchup installed. There’s a free version for Windows and Mac. If you don’t have this installed, you cannot begin immediately.
  • Bring a mouse. Sketchup is much easier with a mouse, and all but impossible to learn with the track pad. Essential.


Just enough Sketchup to pretend you can 3D print
