Event description

Description

It's a new school year, and Ultimaker's first educator workshop of the 2017-18 school year is at NYU's ITP. Come join us for an evening of 3D Design using the technical computing software Mathematica.

Queens College Professor of Mathematics Christopher Hanusa will lead a hands-on tutorial session for using Mathematica for 3D Design. The evening will encompass a quick introduction to Mathematica syntax, an exploration of Mathematica's capabilities, a survey of Mathematica's 3D modeling commands, and a hands-on tutorial that will give you practice in creating your own 3D prints. By the end of the evening, you will have a 3D-print-ready file to take home. Algorthmic and generative mathematical art and jewelry designed in Mathematica will also be on display.

More about Mathematica:

Designed for the new generation of programmers, Mathematica has a vast depth of built-in algorithms and knowledge, all automatically accessible through its elegant unified symbolic language. Scalable for programs from tiny to huge, with immediate deployment locally and in the cloud, Mathematica builds on clear principles—and three decades of development—to create what promises to be the world's most productive programming environment.

Version 11 provides fully integrated capabilities to directly 3D print geometric models, using either an online printing service or your own printer. Algorithmically generate geometric models or import 3D models from files and immediately output physical 3D objects—all highly automated for easy use unlike anything ever seen before.

Important notes:

Please bring a laptop, and download and install Mathematica. A 15-day trial copy of Mathematica is available at https://www.wolfram.com/mathematica/trial/.
  • Go to https://www.wolfram.com/mathematica/trial/ and either "Create Wolfram ID" or sign-in with your known account.
  • After filling in the form, the individual will receive an email with their activation key and link to download.
  • Click on the link and follow the instructions as prompted to install on your machine.
  • For support and further questions, please view http://support.wolfram.com/kb/12456 or contact 1-800-WOLFRAM for manual walk-through.
Professor Hanusa highly recommends that you make sure that your installation of Mathematica is complete and license is activated before coming to the session. To do this, open the program and type in N[Pi, 1000] (commands are case sensitive!) and type "Shift-Enter" to evaluate the command. You should see the first 1000 digits of Pi.

Show and Tell

Ultimaker will bring pizza and drinks, you bring your laptop, your curiousity and maybe even some of your projects from your classes to share with other eucators.
