Make Your First 3D Model
This class will provide an introduction to computer aided drafting (CAD). Students will learn core concepts of 3D design including sketching, constraints, parametric concepts, extrusion, how to add basic 3D structures such as chamfers and fillets, and how to export your work for 3D printing. We will also discuss various softwares popular in different industries. Skills learned in this class will be very portable to other design platforms. Students will leave having completed a mold that can be used in our mold make course.
This class is targeted to those just getting started with 3D design. Beginners will find considerable value in the foundational skills as will intermediate level students who need a refresher or modernization of skills. Advanced users or student with a good, current foundation will put pace this course.
Attendees should be timely in their arrival. The class will move through a project though its course. Late arrivals will have a difficult time catching up.
