6 exclusive online tutorials to learn 3d modeling with 3d printing

Lauren Slowik, Designer Evangelist for Education at Shapeways, is conducting an exclusive course on 3d modeling and 3d printing. This course is segregated into six tutorials which are very useful for transforming your design skills into realism. The course commences with a hand drawing, extrude into a 3D model, alter and set up your 3D model to 3D print.

By undergoing this course, one can learn the fundamentals of 3D modeling and printing that covers how transfer images to 3D models and vital basic perceptions in computer aided design (CAD), along with extrusion, scaling, mesh, water tight, and even interlocking parts.

Be familiar with the core practices at the back 3D printing and one of the most commanding features of the 3D printing how the companies like Shapeways simplify the process through online 3D printing.

The course will focus on the following topics :-

  • Part 1: Intro to 3D Modeling and 3D Printing
  • Part 2: Digitizing your Design in Photoshop CC
  • Part 3: Preparing and Exporting a 3D Model from Photoshop
  • Part 4: Design Tips for Tinkercad
  • Part 5: Designing your 3D Model in Tinkercad
  • Part 6: Uploading Your Design to Shapeways

The course will prepare yourself to sketch your own design to be transformed into a 3D design through which you will be able to design anything, from prototype to final product. Besides, you will get ability to customize your objects (think monograms, colors) and complete the course with ready to print.
