3D Thursdays & Open House

  • February 16 · 6:00 PM

3D Thursdays is HacDC's weekly 3D Design and 3D Printing workshop lead by Julia. Come check out our stock, modified and custom-built 3D printers and multi-tools. Julia can show you how to assemble, repair and upgrade or even design your own 3D printer from the ground up. Or just stop by and check out the space!

We'll also be using and learning ImplicitCAD for 3D part design. ImplicitCAD is 3D design software for 3D printing that uses a text-based object-oriented language very similar to C++. For example:

$res=0.5;
sphere_size=10;
fillet_radius=2;
union(r=fillet_radius)
{ translate([-0.8*sphere_size,0,0])
sphere(5);
translate([0.8*sphere_size,0,0])
sphere(5);
}
