Event description

Description

Join Booster Academy (www.theboosteracademy.com) for our full day long 3D Printing and Design Summer Camp with professional modeler & printer Brian Carnes, and the staff from Sea Dog Game Studios.

This camp will start with a basic walk through of the world of CAD and 3D printing. We’ll experiment with manually recreating the 3D model pipeline to better understand it. We’ll discuss choosing a CAD app, how to convert to a stereolithography file (don't worry, we will explain what that is!) and slice and finally print on a 3D printer. We'll also cover different types of 3d printers as well as advantages and disadvantages of 3d printing services.

This day will continue with a fast paced technology walk-through of the process of creating a 3D printed object. We will focus in on the process of using CAD to create our model with Rhino3D, a professional grade CAD design tool. We will walk through, and create some basic models, as well as look at some completed models that were created for 3d printing and discuss what one should consider to make a successful printable model.

The students will then work with scaling, splitting, tolerances and other final model steps in Rhino3D, as well as converting to a stereolithography file the slicer program (Cura) can read. We’ll discuss the various settings in CURA and how to set up the G-CODE file that the printer will use. We will look to print some of our classroom models based on time and available equipment.

Booster Academy will provide a laptop for each student to work with, as they learn professional modelling and priting tools (no kiddie software here!).

Students must be between 13 and 18 years old.

Camp will be held on the campus of Capital University, in their modern Convergent Media Center building. Lunch and snacks will be provided.

Check-in starts at 8am, with class starting at 9am. The day will be concluded by 5pm, with pickup and career panel lasting until 6pm.


About Brian Carnes:

Brian Carnes is a long time fan of all things geeky, historical, or high tech. As a child his passions included drawing and making models of old sailing ships he read about in naval history books as well as drawing cutaway rockets and airplanes. In 2005 Brian founded the tabletop game company, Sea Dog Game Studios (SDGS). Initially, everything SDGS made was hand sculpted as printers were an expensive option. However, when Brian's tabletop game Sailpower, had a successful Kickstarter run he used some of the profits to buy his first 3D printer. Initially this was used to create masters to be molded with process, but over time it grew into models being sold directly, and Brian has guided Sea Dog Game Studios to now have about 33% of all products produced directly through 3D printing with more being added all the time. The studio now operates more than seven professional-grade 3D printers and plans to add more soon!
