This course is ideal for anyone with prior knowledge of 3D modelling who would like to take their designs further and into the world of 3D printing.
Throughout the course you'll gain knowledge about the requirements for creating 3D content in different systems on the market and their specific design requirements for production.
You'll also gain an overview of the history of 3D printing and current and upcoming trends.
In addition, you'll have the opportunity to develop a design of your choice for production on one of our rapid-prototyping machines. This will consist of one smaller first prototype and a larger final model. We can offer:
We will also cover alternative approaches to content creation, such as 3D scanning.
We offer support for 3D Studio Max or Rhino in our CAD suite to develop your model for 3D printing. Please note that you can use software of your own choice – however, you'll have to bring your own laptop and this may affect the support we can offer.
Please note that this course will not teach 3D modelling software, but includes tips and tricks on how to prepare and optimise your files for 3D printing.
