Design Thinking and 3D Modelling
September 24 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm$90
Class Goals: Students in this class will learn how to think and design in 3D! With the help of our instructor, students will be introduced to Fusion360, navigating a 3D workspace and utilizing a variety of modelling tools to design a project for fabrication. Learning the underlying thought process of how a physical shape can be manufactured will be what students use to drive their design process. By the end of the class, students will have a basic understanding of how to use the software to design a project for fabrication and can use the resulting files in our other classes; Laser Cutting, CNC milling, 3D printing.
Come to this workshop if:
- You want to design your very own unique product
- You have a doodle on a napkin and want to create a professional model/representation of your idea
- You are interested in learning automated fabrication tools like 3D printers and CNC mills and how to create files for them
Prerequisites – None
Required: Basic computer competency (how to use a computer, browse the internet)
Recommended: If you are interested in making your 3D model into a real physical object, please consider taking our 3D printing or CNC classes! It is complementary to this course but not required.
About the Instructor:
Doug Chan , Director and Co-founder at Maker Cube
Doug is an accomplished engineer and serial entrepreneur, with an enthusiasm for technology and rapid prototyping. Previously working in several start-ups, he has delved into many fields of fabrication both traditional and modern. Doug has more than a decade of experience in 3D modelling and computer aided design (CAD) for both work and play. He started modelling with Blender3D during a highschool summer camp to make his own 3D games and quickly became enamored with it. By senior year he was teaching his own class of his peers how to make models, animations and games. Picking up several more CAD programs in university, Doug has expanded his repertoir to be able to quickly design models for real world applications and fabrication processes.
What is the age limit for the class?
