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.
