For Tinkercad users they are rolling out the closure in stages:
Effective immediately they have closed sign-ups for new users
April 30 2013 - All free accounts will be changed to read only
August 31 2013 - All academic accounts will be changed to read only
December 31 2013 - All paid accounts will be changed to read only
June 31 2014 - Read only access for all users will be discontinued
This means if you currently have files stored on Tinkercad, you will have until June 31 2014 to download them from their storage and/or upload them to another repository such as Shapeways, Sketchfab or Thingiverse. If you have unfinished models in Tinkercad you have a limited time to make the modifications to export and/or 3D print them.
This beginners class is an intro to 3D modeling with Autodesk 123D Design and 3D Printing with Shapeways.
We will work step by step through some of the basic tools used to 3D model, how to construct basic forms using sketches, solid modelling, and basic patterns. We will then upload our designs to Shapeways to get a taste of how to export your 3D model to 3D print.
You do not need to have any experience with 3D printing or 3D modeling to participate in this class. Bring your Mac or PC laptop your charger, and an external mouse and create an account on Shapeways prior to the event and download 123D Design we will be using in the class.. If you are interested in a broader overview of the materials, processes and some 3D printed case studies, take a look at the intro to design for 3D printing.
