Design for 3D Printing Course Overview: Last Chance to Register with Our Early Bird Special

Share this Article

Set goals this summer and become a 3D print design expert with our two online courses. The first two-week intensive, Beginner Design for 3D Printing, starts June 20, and you’ll learn design principles, 3D modeling tools and programs, and how to prep your models for print. You’ll hear from industry experts in live webcasts, have small group discussions, and complete assignments to put your new knowledge and skills into action. No experience in 3D print design? Perfect, this class is for you! Here’s a bit about the program:

  • Session 1 | Learn how to design basic shapes using Tinkercad.
  • Session 2 | Find out how to import 2D and 3D files, use community-developed shapes, and create geometric holes with Erin Arden, Entrepreneur, 3D Printer and 3D Design Specialist, (Previously MakerBot Training Director).
  • Session 3 | Learn how to recognize and prevent broken 3D models and use the tool Vectary with Andrej Klement.
  • Session 4 | Get experience with Pixologic Sculptris with Jennifer Fry of Larkspur Corte Madera Schools.

 

Following our Beginner class, you’ll be ready to join our Advanced Design for 3D Printing course starting on July 11. In this two-week interactive workshop, you’ll learn breakthrough engineering concepts and how to use state-of-the-art tools to implement your new techniques. Through live webcasts, you’ll hear from industry leaders who will show you how to animate assemblies, use coding language to create 3D models, and work with parametric design principles to make amazing 3D print models. Check out some examples of what you’ll learn in each session:

  • Session 1 | Learn how to design with tolerance, avoid support materials, and work in Fusion 360 with Jeffry Turnmire of Applied Engineering & Management Corporation.
  • Session 2 | Discover how to animate assemblies, create sophisticated material simulations, and consider the final outcome of your objects with post processing techniques.
  • Session 3 | Learn coding in Openscad with Salvador Richter, Software Developer at AXA-Winterthur.
  • Session 4 | Design challenge!

 

*You don’t have to take Beginning Design Principles before the Advanced course, but it’s recommended.
