Introductory 3D Modeling Classes
Familiarize with 3D printing and Maker culture.
When: Monday, Jan. 13, 2014, 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Where: S.B. Central Library, 40 E. Anapamu St., Santa Barbara
Age limit: Not available
As part of the Santa Barbara Public Library System’s continued push to familiarize the public with 3D-printing and Maker culture, the Central Library will be hosting “3D Modeling and Printing – A Primer,” a free two-hour session designed to give attendees a basic run-through on using various online 3D-modeling tools to create their own 3D-models and renders. After taking the class, select students will then have the opportunity to export their creations and bring them to life using 3D printing technology.
While 3D-printing has experienced quite a boom in popularity over the past couple of years, most 3D-printed objects originate from already-created models uploaded by users to web sites like Thingiverse.com. The goal of this class is for students to familiarize themselves with the basic process of how things go from concept to design to physical manifestation. From this they can pursue additional knowledge – on their own, in conjunction with the local Makerspace in Goleta (sbhackerspace.com), or at the Central Library’s free Makerspace Open Lab on Monday nights from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m.
