Rapid Prototyping with Blender and Pepakura
Sunday, April 27, 2008 from 12:30 PM to 2:30 PM (EDT)
Rapid Prototyping with Blender and Pepakura 1 Session, 3 hours
Learn how to turn virtual 3D models into tangible paper models!
This class will give you the basics for taking a pre-existing 3D model
and get it ready for becoming a physical object. We will use Blender
to learn to "decimate", which gives 3D models that much sought after
lo-tek aesthetic, and from there take our finished virtual forms into
Pepakura. This program will "unfold" our mesh into a flat plane
complete with tabs and allow us to cut, paste, and fold our way
to a physical manifestation of a virtual object!
Before attending, download and install the free software from: www.blender.org http://www.tamasoft.co.jp/pepakura-en/
If you have previous experience with 3D and have a model
you would already like to make out of paper, please come with
that model. Otherwise there will be a compilation of found 3D models
to choose from. Please bring a laptop with you and install Blender
prior to arriving. We9ll be printing your models out on card stock which
will be provided but that said, please bring a glue stick, a pair of
scissors, an xacto, and a ruler.
