    This intensive weekend class will bootstrap you into designing solid models of useful objects suitable for production on a 3D printer. It will be split into two parts, with a lunch break in between.

    OpenSCAD, "The Programmers Solid 3D CAD Modeler", describes the 3D geometry of solid objects in the same manner that Postscript handles 2D shapes. Unlike 3D drawing programs, OpenSCAD's text-based language provides precise control over the solid model's components, so that you can set and adjust their exact size, position, and orientation.

    This class will cover various OpenSCAD and 3D printing related topics, such as:

    • The type of models most suited for OpenSCAD 

    • The fundamental operations of Constructive Solid Geometry 

    • How to write OpenSCAD programs and debug recalcitrant objects

    • The geometric and physical constraints placed on models intended for 3D printing 

    • How to design in-model support structures 

    • Dimensional accuracy and calibration 

    • Slicer parameters and their interaction with the model

    • A walkthrough of the whole process from model to plastic

    There will also be a 3D printer demo!

    Despite the lunch break in the middle, expect to spend most of the day thinking!

    You must bring:

    1) A laptop with OpenSCAD already installed and working:

    2) A standard PC mouse with a scroll wheel for object manipulation (unless your fingertip-fu is strong)

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
