Foundation of Modeling & 3D Printing with Aaron Trocola

1/26/13 from 11AM – 2:30PM

At just 32 years of age, Aaron Trocola brings 15 years of 3D design experience, mostly originating from technology start-up companies like his own 40 West Designs. With specific focus placed on 3D modeling in CAD, animation and visualization, you will be steered by the steady hands of Aaron Trocola as he helps you build a foundation for 3D modeling, driving you through the correct path that will help you start independently designing your own ideas. Through the Foundation of Modeling & 3D Printing, you will learn about file formats, basic workflow and model-fixing tools that will help you through technical difficulties that may appear when designing your creations.  The class begins with a 90 minute breakdown of the foundations of 3D printing, followed by a half-hour break that will lead into a 90 minute session of 3D modeling on SketchUp & 123D Design, which includes a Q & A.

Ultimaker - closeup

Intro to Ultimaker

1/30/13 from 7PM-9PM

The Ultimaker was voted as the Best Open-Hardware 3D Printer on the market by Make Magazine in their special edition Ultimate Guide to 3D Printing in late 2012. During the holiday season in New York City, the Ultimaker’s Doodle 3D Bar at 3DEA captured the imaginations of adults and children alike, introducing curious drifters into the world of 3D printing.

This introduction into the Ultimaker 3D printer will help you get familiarized with the machine itself. You’ll learn how to maintain a 3D printer and what its capabilities truly are. Anyone that attends this course will be eligible to receive a 5% discount on the purchase of an Ultimaker.

Design for Desktop 3D Printers with Kacie Hultgren

2/1/13 from 7PM-8:30PM

This 90 minute seminar will see Kacie Hultgren, mostly known for her 3D design work in the theater industry through her company Pretty Small Things, speak on the possibilities and limitations that come with a desktop 3D printer. Kacie will take you through a brief walkthrough of the 3D printing process and help you explore different design techniques, before attendees will be allowed to pick Kacie’s brain during a thorough Q & A session at the end.

Intermediate 3D Printing with Aaron Trocola

2/9/13 from 4PM-6:30PM

Aaron Trocola returns with his incredible wealth of 3D modeling knowledge that only 15 years of hands on experience could achieve. During this class, students will have to be ready to remove the training wheels because this intermediate 3D printing course will go beyond the basics. The focus on workflows and advanced modeling concepts will help you maneuver through multiple platforms of 3D modeling software. You’ll be introduced to color and UV mapping through the first portion of the class, before going on break and returning to learn about topological subdivision modeling during the second half of the class. Aaron Trocola will introduce you to Wings3D and Meshlab, both available for Mac & PC, and important in the advanced stages of 3D modeling.
