3D printing+

This workshop is an introduction to 3D printing. It will acquaint students with 3D printing techniques and provide hands-on 3D imaging sessions using a 3D printing software. The objective is to provide a better understanding of the possibilities and limitations of these new technologies in Critical Information Studies through the creation of a personalized take-home 3D print.

By the end of this workshop students will be able to:

  • Understand the possibilities and limitations of 3D printing technologies
  • Identify some examples of how 3D printing technologies can be used in different contexts
  • Infer the ways in which 3D printing technologies might be applied in new situations
  • Apply their learning by planning a personalized print
  • Create a printable 3D model using Autodesk Fusion

NOTE: Participants must bring a laptop with Autodesk's Fusion 360 installed on it to the workshop session. If you do not have a laptop, you and borrow a Mac from the Inforum with this application installed. It is also recommended that you bring an external mouse.
