Basic How-To Creating 3d Object Designs

I will give a basic overview of what tools (software/hardware) are required to produce a successful 3d printed object!  I will demonstrate the design of some simple 3d objects and show various stages of layout of a sample case for a project using open source tools.  The focus of this class will be on Design and the overall process unless we can get someone with the 3d printing expertise to assist.  I will be using either SketchUp or 123d Design for the design aspects of the class.

You will need to have your own laptop with the software pre-loaded if you want to follow along with the design parts of the class.

    Just wanted to let people know, Chris will be doing a segment on 3d design using Sketchup after my segment using the 123d design software so you will get to see both applications in use. If you want to work along where possible you should at least download the software from the web. We will help you with installation if necessary. I'm still working on getting a 3d printer for people to see in operation.

    If anyone has any particular 3D designs they want some help with please post a description in the comments and send some pictures or hand drawings if you have them.

    I'm planning on showing some simple 3D shape constructions and then design an actual case for an Arduino Uno.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
