Description

With Anita Frost

3-D Printing or additive manufacturing is a relatively new technology that enables production of three dimensional objects from digital files. This course, in collaboration with the company Dotterel, is targeted at those with no or limited experience with 3D printing and CAD software.

The tutor will guide you through the full 3D printing experience from concept to object. With a small group of students (only 6 students) Anita will provide one to one time during class, helping you learn and aid in developing your design to be 3D printer ready.

At the end of this course you will know how to design and make something in CAD (Computer-aided drafting) and have it 3D printer ready, making your future creations with 3D printing easier. You will also leave with two small 3D prints and the tools and contacts to continue designing and creating! The team at Dotterel will be able to provide further advice, support and 3D printing service for your creations after the course.

This course is 12 hours long and therefore only covers an introduction to CAD. This is enough for the beginner student to learn the basic functions of CAD and create new projects on their own after the course.


Session 1:

- Introduction to CAD

- Introduction to 3D printing

- Process on how to go from a sketch to a 3D CAD design


Session 2:

- Extra practice on 3D design

- Start designing own project


Session 3:

- Group discussion on each project and problem solving

- CAD design


Session 4:

- Group discussion on each project and problem solving

- Finishing CAD design

- Demo on rendering

- Tutorial on exporting files and getting design ready for printing

- Final 3D printing project will be ready after the course.


Note from the tutor:

All material will be provided (in the limit of the production of 2 small objects per students).

Open source 3D design software will be provided and available for download by students. Each student will create their own login and their work will be saved remotely so they will be able to continue working from home. Access to 3D printers is provided during the course and beyond with the Dotterel team.

Student should expect to spend a few hours working on their project between sessions and will need access to a computer at home to do so.

If you have a specific project or goal in mind for this course, feel free to contact us to check if it is achievable.


THIS COURSE HAS BEEN POSTPONED TO TERM 4 AND WILL NOT RUN IN TERM 3.

THE 4 WEEKS COURSE WILL RUN FROM TUESDAY EVENING 17 OCTOBER TO TUESDAY 7 NOVEMBER 2017.

EACH CLASS WILL START AT 6PM AND FINISH AT 9PM.
