Introduction to 3D Modeling with Steph Piper
June 23, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm AEST$100 – $125
Introduction to 3D Modelling
In this session, you will learn the basics of the best free software suites for 3D modelling in CAD and 3D sculpting. Learn the 3d modelling workflow and optimise your design for 3D Printing. You will learn how to create beautiful organic sculpted models with MeshMixer, including creating low poly and Voronoi models, as well as touching up models with brushes. You will learn the basics of CAD modeling with Fusion 360, including creating solid CAD models and smooth, elegant t-spline models.
Get a comparison of free vs. paid software, with a taster demonstration of Rhino 3D and Simplify 3D functionality. Receive a reference 3D model of yourself with live 3D scanning during the workshop Be confident in creating replacement parts for at work or home with 3D modelling skills and create your own life hacks. Participants must BYO laptop + charger cable and have Fusion 360 (Hobbyist licence) and MeshMixer pre-installed.
Steph Piper will be facilitating this Workshop. Steph has a background in biofabrication and 3D printing for medical grade implants. Steph is currently the Patron of the Brisbane Hackerspace and the Community Engagement Coordinator at USQ, looking after the Library Makerspace. She also teaches 3D printing, 3D modelling and Arduino classes. Steph has hosted talks and workshops for the Wonder of Science Program, QUT Creative Enterprise Australia, Brisbane Workshop, Woodford Folk Festival, The Planting Festival and much more. Steph was apart of the 2017 Digital Champions Program, has been featured by Peppermint Magazine, was a finalist in the Women in STEM awards and was selected for the Startup Catalyst Youth Mission to Silicon Valley. She has also presented at the STEMaker Conference and STAQ Science is Primary Teacher’s Conference about building maker culture with older age groups.
