dorkShop : 3D Printing is THE Best Thing Since Sliced Bread

We know it’s true and the dorkShop know it too thanks to the Intro to Design for 3D Printing at Parsons The New School of Design.

Arthur Young-Spivey, Caitlin Morris, Lisa Marks and Alvaro Soto introduced the context and concepts of 3D printing along with a beginners tutorial in 3D modeling for 3D printing in Rhino.  The group ranged from artists, architects, jewelers and designers all interested in making their ideas a reality with 3D printing.  If you are interested in running a design for 3D printing class in your area get in touch with us and we may be able to help spread the word. Any schools interested in getting access to 3D printing should subscribe to our 3D printing educational program.

dorkShops are skill-sharing events of the nerd variety.
dorkShops are free and open to all. No experience required.

dorkShops are run by students at Parsons The New School of Design, specifically in the Design and Technology
program. We all have unique talents and skill sets that we’d like to
share with everyone. We want to introduce you to new things. We want to
share our creations with you. We’d like you to share your skills and
creations with us.

A wide variety of skill levels are in attendance at each event, but
we expect most people to be beginners or need a lot of help. If you have
specific projects you need help with, bring them and we’ll try to help
answer your questions. Some dorkShops will have advanced breakout
sessions depending on the demand.

Dorkshops cover a variety of topics including:

  • coding
  • time-based editing/design software
  • web design
  • open source software
  • mobile media
  • visual design
  • digital art
  • physical computing

Become a fan of dorkShop on Facebook to receive news from dorkShop and to connect with fellow dorks!

Also dorkShop is excited to officially be a New School Student Organization starting 2010
