About Maker Tech: Product Design and 3D Printing
Explore the process of design conceptualization to drawing and modeling your product, to printing your product using software and open-source platforms.
Perhaps it will be a device that limits water flow from a faucet to encourage conservation or sustainable footwear that corrects poor foot mechanics. You’ll go through the process of design conceptualization to drawing and modeling your product on the computer, to finally printing your product using software and open-source platforms. After receiving a virtual primer on the 3D printing process and using polygonal geometry to efficiently realize your design ideas, you will learn how to manufacture designs at home via professional services like Shapeways. You’ll be designing and creating like a pro before the end of the week!
