Learn to Design for 3D Printing in NYC

If you want to learn how to get started designing for 3D printing we are running an introductory class in New York City on Thursday the 14th of February, 2013.  The class is suitable for anyone, of any age who is interested in getting started 3D printing.

The Intro to Design for 3D Printing class will cover the basic principles behind design for 3D printing, the free tools available to get started and the materials and processes used to make your ideas real.  Bring your Mac or PC laptop your charger, and an external mouse and create an account on Shapeways prior to the event and download free 3D modeling software 123D Design from Autodesk prior to the class so we can run through some of the basic tools, and maybe even design a little something. 

Sign up via Skillshare and be sure to bring your laptop and mouse.

    It would be great if this could be offered as a webinar also.

      Hey Rob,

      We are looking into that, we may even film parts of this for future tutorials.

      Let me know if there is anything specific you would like to know, as the great thing about these classes is that we can answer any questions instantly…

      Another vote here for a webinar. I’m not in the New York area, but would like to see it as well.

    I’m also interested in a webinar.

  3. Making A Maker

    Agreed! A webinar or curriculum sharing (so we can setup some local Shapeways-based learning) would be fantastic! NYC is just too far away sadly!

    Will you also guide regarding 3d printing design software’s? or will it only be using 123dapp?

    1. Duann

      Hi Urika,
      We will cover other available software, but the tutorial section will be based on using 123D Design

    Any chance you’ll do another class? Or, any advice for a complete novice?
