In this workshop participants will be introduced to the very basics of translating an image from 2D to 3D. This class is a great opportunity to experience and explore 3D printing in an easy and understandable format whether you are a crafter, designer, artist or generally interested in new technology and its possibilities.
We’ll show you how to adjust, resize, manipulate and optimize your image in design programs such as Gimp, Photoshop, Inkscape and/or Illustrator. Participants will follow the instructor in a step by step procedure as we work together to translate from 2D to a 3D file using 3D modelling software – Autodesk 123D Design. Learners will get an introduction to the 3D printer’s functions and will have the chance to print their own design!
