Introduction to CAD design for 3D Printing and Laser Cutting projects
This introductory class is for students who have little or no experience with 3d cad and will teach you how to create your own designs using a free program called Onshape that you will be able to use at home to continue to create designs in 3d that can be used for digital fabrication on 3d printers, laser cutters, CNC machines or plasma cutters etc. At our workshop, our experienced instructor will guide you, step by step, through the process.
This is the prerequisite series for the Advanced CAD Design Series.
- A general overview of 3d cad programs
- Setting up a free account with Onshape that you can continue to use at home.
- Navigating the program.
- An introduction to the 3d cad tools
- Creating your first simple 3d design
- Exporting the design for 3d printing
- Printing the design on a 3d printer
By the end of our workshop, you’ll have a tangible, real-life product that you can take home and be proud of. You’ll leave feeling empowered and inspired, equipped with the knowledge and skills to turn your ideas into reality.
So, what are you waiting for? Join us for an unforgettable experience and become a master of 3D design and printing. Register now and take the first step toward bringing your ideas to life!
