Welcome to the world of 3D printing! In this class, you will learn everything you need to know to design and 3D print your own creations. It's really three-classes-in-one. We'll learn Fusion 360, an awesome (free) 3D modeling program that will let you design just about anything. We'll learn the ins-and-outs of desktop 3D-printing, and we'll learn how to sketch by hand so we can generate solid ideas. With this class and enough practice, you'll be a pro in no time. If you want a more lightweight introduction to 3D printing, check out our free Easy 3D Printing Class!
Join My Webinar Series!
Want to dig deeper into 3D modeling? I'm hosting a Webinar series with hundreds of students worldwide, and you are invited. First, I'll teach the Wax Stamp lesson from this class in real time, then I'll teach you how to use the Sculpt Tools to make organic forms (not covered in the 3D printing class), then finally, I'll teach the Bottle Lock lesson to cover working with multiple parts and mechanical joints. Also, all webinar attendees get a 20% discount at Shapeways!
All you have to do is download and install Fusion 360, then follow the links below to register for free.
