3D Printer Basics


I was wondering if anyone might be willing to teach me a bit about 3D printing, the programs that control the printers themselves, the materials that they use (specifically the ones that are in the space), and how to use them. I haven’t really ever had any hands on experience, only seen videos of people talking about how they work.

Also, if as a part of this instruction, I wanted to start a project. Are there preferred vendors and specific materials that we should use? As well, how would you determine how much filament to buy for a project, and which type is best suited to a specific use case?
