Join our Beginner Design for 3D Printing crash course on March 5 to learn from Senior 3D Designer of Wayfair, Jordan Pelovitz. At Wayfair, an e-commerce home goods company, Jordan leads a team that creates home furnishing models using Autodesk’s 3DS Max. Wayfair uses 3D modeling in place of traditional photography for generating 2D images for its catalog of products featured on the popular website.
The company has become so good at creating these 3D models, it even launched Wayfair 3D University, the industry’s first comprehensive curriculum of 3D-modeling standards tailored for home furnishings suppliers and manufacturers.
In addition to this work at Wayfair, for the past five years, Jordan has taught CAD and 3D printing at a makerspace called HATCH, an initiative of the Watertown Free Public Library in the Boston area. With his free time, he develops curriculum and webinars for 3D printer companies and works as a freelance product designer, where he often uses his 3D printing skills to create client projects. His projects run the gamut from automotive, lighting, and even a 3D printed skull implant design.

We are excited to hear Jordan’s expert insight on 3D print designing and modeling in the first session of our Beginner Design for 3D Printing crash course. In Jordan’s kickoff session, you’ll learn to think like a designer and get an in-depth overview of ways to approach designing basic shapes for 3D printing. Additionally, you’ll also see a demonstration of Tinkercad, an easy-to-use 3D modeling program that allows you to turn your idea into a design for a 3D printer. In the second session of this course, you’ll learn 3D printer preparation programs and how to use them. You’ll hear case studies of difficult to plate models and discuss different orientations for different results.
Beginner Design for 3D Printing is the first of a series of four crash courses we are leading in the month of March. Our cumulative crash course series includes:
