Launch Weekend: Intro to 3D Modeling
Session Leaders: David Tracy
Created By: Arielle Hein
An introductory session about 3D modeling for design, fabrication, and VR.
We'll be working with a trial version of Rhinoceros, but many of these concepts translate into other modeling platforms, such as SketchUp, Maya, Cinema4D, Blender.
Please download a 90 day trial of Rhino here: http://www.rhino3d.com/download
We'll go over the basics of 3D modeling, common considerations for VR and game engines, and interfacing with other applications and outputting information for Laser Cutters, Mills, and 3D printers.
If you're interested in Game Engines and VR, please download and install Unity Engine: https://unity3d.com/get-unity/download
If you're interested in 3D printing on the MakerBots at ITP, please download and install Makerbot Print: https://www.makerbot.com/download-print/
The format of this session will be a short lecture (30 mins) followed by a hands-on workshop (60-90 mins).
Open to Campers of all backgrounds and skill levels, although the emphasis will be on fundamental concepts.
