How much do tickets cost?
-> Create3D is absolutely FREE to attend. But please also RSVP on Eventbrite so we can manage sign-ups.

What if I don't have experience with 3D modeling or 3D printing?
-> We are hosting workshops before the event to get you up and running. There will also be industry experts and mentors to help with any questions you have during the designathon.

What should I bring?
