3D Modeling by Numbers: Learn to use OpenSCAD
Sunday, June 27, 2010 from 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM (EDT)
Brooklyn, United States
OpenSCAD is "The Programmers Solid 3D CAD Modeler." Rather than learn tricky user interfaces and navigate seemingly endless obscure menus, OpenSCAD uses a simple scripting language to generate 3D models from either existing or new 2D drawings. We'll start in 2D (great for creating designs for the laser cutter) and move into 3D modeling (perfect for MakerBot!).
A basic understanding of computer programming is helpful but not required.
Bring a laptop to class, and if possible install OpenSCAD ahead of time: http://openscad.org/
