Quick intro to 3d printing (30min)

20


20 simbi per session - Virtual OK

Interested in getting into 3d printing, but not sure how to start? I can talk you through the basics and point you towards the right software to get you started, no matter what your skill level.

Alternatively, if you have a project in mind, we can talk about the details and I can help advise you on how to get started.

Things we might talk about:
- types of 3d printers (FDM, SLA, etc)
- 3d printing services (Shapeways, etc)
- 3d design software (Tinkercad, Blender, Maya, etc)
- CAD software (Fusion360, OpenSCAD, FreeCAD, etc)
- using other people's models
- capturing 3d geometry from the real world
- combining other people's models with your own (Meshmixer)
- 3d file formats (OBJ, STL, etc)
- things to watch out for

Training & Qualifications


I have an extensive background in 3d modeling and animation, having taught Maya at the college level for about 4.5 years. I also design and print various things (mainly toys) using a variety of software (mainly Fusion360).

Here's a few things I've made:

a mechanical gift I designed for my girlfriend for our 5th anniversary: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LECbsYAFou4 (designed in OpenSCAD, printed with Shapeways)

a GIF of a toy I designed- a "pocket rainbow", suitable for all of one's portable rainbow needs:

a GIF of another toy- a rope bridge suitable for 3.75" action figures that "breaks" when you pull a tab:

Trading Preference: I’m flexible, just hit me up!

I at my happiest when working on fun, creative projects, and Simbi seems like a great way to help others with their projects, and to get help with my own when I need it.

About Adrian Herbez

I like to think of myself as a toymaker. I have various skills, all related to making fun things to share with other people. I'm a software engineer by day (mainly in the games / virtual world space),... but I also like working with my hands, and I'm incredibly excited about what modern developments like 3d printing have to offer. show more
