Program Summary

Learning the foundation of designing for the the 3D printing process is a foundation we try to emphasise on. Without the ability to create parts from your imagination your 3D printer will be limited to printing parts other people have designed/scanned. Depending on your skill these workshops will consist of 3 sessions each running for 3 hours in length:

  • Part I: Overview + Features

Suitable for those who have never used CAD before.

  • Part II: MultiPart + Assemblies 

Understanding the benefit of modelling separate parts in one studio and how to create an assembly demonstrating motion.

  • Part III: Versions, Importing and Drawings

Drafting your design and an overview of various unique features Onshape provides.

Take your skills to the next level!

Onshape is a multi platform cloud based CAD software you can use to make and share 3D models of parts and assemblies

Why Should I Learn 3D Modelling?

3D printing requires a 3D model of the part you wish to create. By developing the skills to design and process objects you can create three dimensional computer files of real things customised to your needs. Whether it be a shoe that fits your particular foot, a prosthetic for your size hand, a chair that directly fits the curvature of your back or even some armour for your cats body shape and size. The possibilities are endless.
