Event description

Description

A class for 3D newcomers who want to learn the basics of creating 3D models and printing them. Your instructor will take you through key concepts of 3D printing, demo the technology on our printers, and lead the class through the design process of creating a model and preparing it to print. We'll talk about creating functional objects, creative objects, available materials, print reliability, and compare various printer models and features.

Please bring a laptop with working WiFi and a mouse with a scroll wheel. (You can technically get by without the mouse but it's STRONGLY recommended.) We'll be using free-to-use Autodesk software in the design portion of the class. To speed things along, please sign up for an Autodesk account at https://www.tinkercad.com/ It would also smooth things along if you download and install the latest version of Meshmixer in advance of the class. https://www.meshmixer.com/

This class will be taught by AJ McGuire. As with all NYC Resistor events, this class is 18+ and governed by our Code of Conduct. The Code of Conduct, as well as accessibility information, can be found at www.nycresistor.com/participate/.

Please note that refunds must be requested 72 hours in advance. If you have any questions, please email classes@nycresistor.com.
