3DAY – 3D Modeling Introductory Workshop Series

3D modelling is an essential tool for product design, ideation and design communication. When partnered with digital fabrication tools like 3D Printing, it can be used to rapidly transform a computer model into the real thing.

Learn the basics of 3D modeling through demonstrations and explorations using Autodesk’s Inventor. Hands-on project based exercises will introduce some of the skills necessary for a simple 3D modeling mini-project.

Instructor Wolf Schmitz is an RCOA Parent, Design & Technology Teacher, and a Mechanical Engineering Technologist.  You can see examples of some of his projects at www.CompuCAD.ca

Project Design a ‘chess piece’ sized sampler through parametric 3D modelling into a PDF drawing with orthographic views with the objective of preparing the model for 3D printing


Those who are interested in a more advanced class series will be contacted in the Spring and offered an opportunity to participate in a more extensive series for a car design project.
