  • 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.

  • Introductions
    • Level of 3d modelling experience (none required)
  • 3D Printing Theory
  • Sketchup (many options, but this is easiest, not necessarily most powerful or precise)
    • Navigation
      • Zoom/Orbit/Pan
      • Set views
    • Basic Shapes
      • Rectangle/Line/Circle/Polygon
      • Precise measurements
    • Shape Manipulation
      • Push/pull
      • Move vertice/edge
      • Rotate
      • Scale
      • Scale -1 Trick
      • Offset
    • Advanced Shapes
      • Group
      • Follow me
      • Outershell
    • Misc
      • Tape/Erase
    • Ready? Let's Make something. Learner's requests?
    • Exporting
  • Slic3r slicing software (in a minor way)
    • Sometimes can need NetFabb fixing
  • 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.

Thanks!

Hbergeronx (talk) : really enjoyed the class! adding some pics of the "thing" i learned how to sketch up and print, with much help.

much enjoyed the conversations and sharing of ideas and tools. Hbergeronx (talk) 21:13, 17 March 2013 (UTC)
