  • DURATION 2 hours
  • LOCATION sudo room
  • PRICE $0
  • NUTSHELL Live Sketchup and print tutorial

Plan

  • Understand the workflow (Idea>Design>STL>Slice>Print).

  • DESIGN we'll make a 3d digital representation in sketchup
  • STL gloss over this detail and leave it for another class
  • SLICE gloss over this detail and leave it for another class
  • PRINT marvel, and take home.

Learn

On the right you'll see some examples of what I've 3D printed at sudo room, having learned all my skills at sudo room, from sudoers.

  • 3D Printing Theory
  • Sketchup
    • Navigation
    • Basic Shapes
    • Shape Manipulation
    • Advanced Shapes
      • Exporting
  • Slic3r slicing software (in a minor way)
  • Repetier Host Printer Software (in a minor way)
  • How to manually adjust the 3d printer in times of crisis.

Bring

  • Come with a laptop with sketchup installed. There's a free version for Windows and Mac. If you don't have this installed, you cannot begin immediately.
  • Bring a mouse. Sketchup is much easier with a mouse, and all but impossible to learn with the track pad. Essential.
