We will work step by step through some of the basic tools used to 3D model, how to construct basic forms using sketches, solid modelling, and basic patterns. We will then upload our designs to Shapeways to get a taste of how to export your 3D model to 3D print.
You do not need to have any experience with 3D printing or 3D modeling to participate in this class.
If you are interested in a broader overview of the materials, processes and some 3D printed case studies, take a look at the intro to design for 3D printing.
Duann Scott is an Industrial Designer, writer and researcher specializing in the democratization of product design through online digital fabrication. He works with Shapeways to help promote the 3D printing company and it’s community.
With experience bringing bespoke products to being through traditional fabrication techniques and cutting edge 3D printing technologies Duann’s practical experience combined with his academic research into the social implications of digital fabrication gives him a broad understanding of the field as it is evolving.
