Introduction to 3D Design and Printing
Instructor: Shelly Bartlett-Farrell 

Thursday, September 28, 2023
6:00 - 8:00pm


This brief seminar is perfect for people who want find out just how easy it is to get started in the world of 3D design and printing before committing to the craft. Hint: You don't even have to purchase a 3D printer!

My goal is to shorten your learning curve by sharing tips to allow you to avoid some of the frustrations I experienced as a beginner. 

I will briefly introduce two basic types of 3D printers (resin and filament) to give an insight as to how they work. Then you will learn to design a simple vase, using basic skills, upon which you can build your skills to master more complex designs. 

Attendees will take home a 3D printed 1:12 scale vase, previously printed and ready to finish.

Tools to bring: I will use the Shapr3D app to demonstrate design. It is not necessary to bring a laptop or tablet in order to benefit from this seminar. Devoting all your attention to listening, watching, taking notes, and asking questions is of great benefit. That being said, some may wish to apply the skills learned during the seminar. A free version of Shapr3D is available from the Shapr3D website, and you are welcome to bring a device with the free (or paid) version already downloaded to your device. Downloading ahead of time will allow you to focus on learning. The app works best on a PC with a separate mouse (not trackpad) or an iPad with the Apple Pencil. If you are a student, educator, or faculty member with a valid educational institution email address, you can download, for free, the same paid version I use. See the Shapr3D website for more information. I am not a representative of, nor endorsing any products used in this seminar. They are just what I use.
