Each week we feature 3D Hubs events, such as workshops, that occur all over the worldlogo and this week’s workshop takes place in Vancouver, British Columbia. 3D Hubs lists 52 past events that it has sponsored in any number of its locations in 150 countries. In this one, participants will be designing and printing their own customized lampshades while learning the tricks of the trade too!

Design to Print: An Introduction to 3D Modeling in Autodesk Fusion 360| Vancouver, BC

If you have 3.5 hours, $17.50, a laptop with an external mouse, and an interest in learning more about 3D modeling using Autodesk Fusion 360, you still have time to sign up for the next 3D printing workshop offered by 3D Hubs. This workshop takes place in Vancouver, British Columbia, and the early bird special of $15.00 is already sold out but there are still spots left.

This workshop will have you using Autodesk Fusion 360 with the stated goal of getting a grip on the software “while designing a 3D printable lampshade which you can actually print using 3D Hubs.” Since this is an introductory workshop, it’s also suitable for middle and high school aged young people who are just now getting early exposure to 3D modeling and printing.  Also, in the event description, 3D Hubs states that the workshopth goal is to create an “informative and fun space” that will not only introduce attendees to 3D modeling, but will also leave them with a beautiful and functional 3D printed item that will express all of their hard work and new modeling skills.

The event description states:

“We’re especially excited to be hosting the event at MakerLabs Vancouver, who have come on board as venue sponsors. The second highlight is that we’ll have Curtis Chan of the Autodesk Fusion 360 team teaching the workshop, so you’ll have the expert at your disposal. We’ll start off with a demo of Fusion 360 after which you’ll have the opportunity to get started on personalizing your own lampshade.”

According to 3D Hubs’ Vancouver Mayor, Nathan Buxton, the workshop is divided into two parts. In the first part you will learn to create an account; how to sketch and model; how to insert image files; and create text as sketch. In part two of the workshop, you will learn how to import and customize your model; export the .stl file; sketch an image with splines; and extrude text as geometry.

And last but not least, you will have the opportunity to 3D print your own customized lampshade. If you live in or near the Vancouver area, head on over to MakerLabs Vancouver for what sounds like a highly informative workshop, and don;t forget to let us know that you have attended in the 3D Hubs Vancouver Event forum thread on 3DPB.com.
