Enabling the Makers: An Intro to Design for 3D Printing


Display comments as (Linear | Threaded)

My thanks to Ana & Dave for holding a VERY effective workshop that provided an introduction to using (free!) Goggle Sketchup through to uploading and use of the Shapeways ordering system.
I can forsee these workshops by providing a real world space eventually building up to the vibrancy of the Shapeways online community.
Good work!

How about video or a how to guide for everyone who couldn't attend?

Yeah! Surely they recorded it.



Cause any new info from the masters is info I don't have =)

Agreed; Webinar or a recording of the training would be awesome.

I would love to see a recording of this presentation!

@Charles thanks for the kind words! I'm so glad we could provide you guys with a useful experience. :-)

For those who weren't there, this time we didn't record it. We're still researching which equipment we need in order to provide you with a decent viewing experience. But it's good to know that you guys are interested.

I'm meeting the head of video at Etsy tomorrow to get some advice, so next time we hope to be all set to record. :-)

It's not rocket science: anyone with a $300 camera and a tripod could have recorded the presentation.

Hey Jon, sorry, the timing just wasn't right. We hope to have it set to go for next time.

I look forward to that! I've used SketchUp for years, and would love to be able to use that to create printable 3D objects. Thus far, I have been unable to make that work.

For all those who live a long way away (Europe) a web course would be a wonderful idea. Please think about it seriously - it would help many people who are enthusiasticand want to use the system but get a bit lost in programming/drawing details (me for instance) and get their model plan drawing full of holes......I have no idea how I managed that!
