Workshop Archive: 3D Modeling with Rhino for Fabrication
In this workshop, students will learn how to use and apply the 3D computer-aided design (CAD) program, Rhino for Digital Fabrication. Rhino is a NURBS-based 3-D modeling software, a useful design tool to design files for the Laser Cutter, CNC Router, and 3D Printer. These are machines at the AS220 Labs, and can be used by members. This workshop is meant to cover how to properly design and prepare your files for the machines. A basic understanding of computer design and digital fabrication is recommended, but not required. You are also encouraged to bring your own Laptop if you already have the program, otherwise you may use the computers here at the Media Arts Lab.
OpenSCAD is free 3D modeling program that takes lines of code and converts it into a 3d model. It has become a very useful tool for designing mechanical parts on the 3D Printer. If you are into programming code and free things, then this program is for you!
AS220 Labs is running a workshop that will provide an introduction to the program, covers the basics, and discuss how it relates to 3D Printing. To sign up for the workshop, go here – http://shop.as220.org/products/intro-to-openscad
