This summer we introduced a Skillshare class that went over the basics of using Shapeways to create and sell your designs. Those videos focused on the ins and outs of merchandising your shop, creating a product line and using social media to get the most engagement from current and potential customers. Today, we’re introducing a new class that takes a step back and focuses on the process of actually creating a product.
3D Printing: Solving Problems Through Product Design delves into the basics of creating a product – from finding inspiration in everyday things to the importance of prototyping. Lauren takes you through the steps of her own design process in creating a product that can hold her Metrocard and headphones.
Whether it’s deciding what software to use to design with, or figuring out the best material for the first print there are a lot of little decisions you have to make when creating a design. These videos will help you plan for those, and hopefully make your process much easier.
