Michael Peng will host a series of workshops on 3D printing, to make ideas real. We will start from the basic knowledge, brainstorming, design with 3D model software, and finish with 3D printing your ideas.
September 1, 2pm, xinchejian, Workshop Kickoff
Michael will show us from a small project, scan an daily object, toy, cups, etc… or a body part, finger, ear, ankle…and use the data to design a new object, and PRINT!
He will also show the basic knowledge of 3D printing, its’ beginning, development and the future.
Brainstorm, what can we do, what knowledge and tools should we have.
Cross discipline collaboration and cool ideas.
Workshops Study: 3 or 4 weekend of nights
Learn how to use a pritner, what is STL file, which software can be used for 3D modeling
Learn how to use Rhino and Grasshopper.
3Ds MAX & Sketchup.
Processing, notes, arduino.
Make your Own: 4 to 6 weekend of weeknights
Workshop will based on students’ personal projects. We will use the 3D scanning, printing and software knowledge we learned, to make individual projects: toys, jewellery, models, interactive projects, robots….
