In this workshop participants will be introduced to the basic methods of designing and 3D printing for metal casting. This class is a great opportunity to experience and explore 3D printing in an easy and understandable format, whether you are a crafter, designer, artist or generally interested in new technology.
This class will introduce you to basic 3D printing, with a step-by-step instruction in designing an object using Autodesk 123D Design, a 3D modeling software. Learners will get an introduction to Formlabs Form+1 3D printer – we will cover basic technicalities, functions, set up and cleanup. Students will have the chance to design and print their own castable wax/resin model. We will also show the steps to finishing the 3D printed piece, preparing it for casting into metal.
