Course Description

Do you have an idea for a 3D printed object but don’t know where to start? Unlock the world of 3D design and bring your vision to life with this crash course in foundational 3D printing and design. You’ll learn the essentials of CAD, the industry standard in 3D design software, and how to apply it to create your own unique design in just one week!

Refine your design in our Advanced Design for 3D Printing course the following week. At the end of the advanced course, our team will vote on the best design and the winning design will be printed by CoKreeate, a 3D Printing & Scanning services company. *

*The winning design may have to be modified based on the expertise of the designers at CoKreeate. The designers will work with the winner to make the design perfect under CoKreeate’s guidelines. General sizing guidelines: Sandstone: 7x7x7 inches, FDM: 8x10x8 inches, and Resin: 7x7x7 inches.

Allen and Diana Arseneau, Founders, Jamber

Session 1: Design Thinking for 3D Printing

Learn to think like a designer in this session, which includes an in-depth overview of ways to approach designing basic shapes for 3D printing. Hear from founders of Jamber Mug and how they used a human-centric, data-driven design approach to create their 3D-printed mug that is changing the way that we drink coffee. Literally!



Jordan Lang, Industrial Design Lead, Propelland

Session 2: The Ins and Outs of Preparing a Model for Printing

Join this live interactive presentation on how to prepare 3D designs for Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) — the most widely used 3D printing technology — using software including Fusion 360 and Maya. See a few case studies from Propelland’s Industrial Design Lead Jordan Lang who uses a human-centered approach to create product design and prototypes for companies including Powerade, Coca Cola, and Audi. He’ll show you how to build functional prototypes, give you best practices for printing very large to very tiny objects, and answer any questions you have in a live Q&A.
