3D design is an intimidating skill to learn, especially if you don’t know where to start – but you can start with 3DPrint.com. This week we will be commencing our first online training session, Beginner Design for 3D Printing. Starting on Thursday, this four-week, once-a-week course will teach you how to design a 3D model from initial idea to final prototype. No prior experience is necessary; we’ll teach you all the basics of CAD and the rules of 3D design.The course will kick off on Thursday with “Beginning Design Principles – Parts 1 and 2,” led by Tinkercad Community Manager Andrew Taylor and Formlabs Training and Development Lead Jordan Pelovitz, respectively. In the coming weeks you’ll go on to learn engineering principles, sculptural design and animation, parametric modeling and a lot more. By the conclusion of the course, you’ll have designed your own 3D model, which Formlabs will 3D print and ship to you for free. You’ll also receive a certificate of completion from 3DPrint.com.
Registration has been steadily increasing as we get closer to the start of the course, and there’s still time to sign up if you haven’t already done so. The registration fee is $249, but groups of three or more can get a 20% discount by signing up together – plus, it’s a great team-building activity!
The same rates apply to Advanced Design for 3D Printing, which will immediately follow Beginner Design, starting on Thursday April 6. If you like what you’ve learned in Beginner Design and want to learn more, you can register for Advanced Design and continue progressing, or, if you already have basic design skills, you can skip the Beginner level altogether. As an added bonus, though, everyone who registers for Advanced Design will be given access to the Beginner Design archives.
We’ve been seeing a great deal of interest in the courses, and we’re really looking forward to them! We’re looking to offer more training, webinars, and other educational content as a supplement to our news publication, and we think people are really going to get a lot out of this. You can register for Beginner Design for 3D Printing here, and don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions at [email protected]. Discuss in the Beginner Design forum at 3DPB.com.
