Come to the Tulane Makerspace to learn the basics of CAD and 3D Printing! We will be using Fusion 360 to create some designs to be printed at the Tulane Makerspace!
Join us to go from idea to your design to physical object you can take home in just 2 hours! Parametric CAD is a super powerful tool to create dimensionally precise designs!
Try to come with a laptop with Fusion 360. To get a free student license go to Autodesk's Website (https://www.autodesk.com/education/edu-software/overview?sorting=feature...) and create a student account with your Tulane Email.
This event will be held at the Tulane Makerspace (https://makerspace.tulane.edu/index.php/MakerSpace_Access), and is open to all current Tulane Students.
To those with experience with Rhino (Architecture's chosen CAD software), we highly recommend learning a parametric CAD software like Fusion if you want to create 3d prints! It makes designing for manufacturing much easier.
For those with existing Fusion CAD experience, keep an eye out for our upcoming event about 3D printer slicing and Maintenance, where we will cover how
different slicing techniques can greatly affect the properties of FDM prints, as well as go over common printer types and how they should be maintained.
