Early Bird Pricing For Summer Program 2024 Ends Feb 23
Most of us get an idea in our heads from time to time where we visualize a physical object of some specific shape, because we think that having it would make something easier, or make something impossible possible. And most of us end up letting it go within just a few minutes because we think that thinking anymore along those lines is pointless, because.. who has the time and resources to get something manufactured?
Now imagine if instead of abandoning the idea, you could actually begin to work on it and within a few hours have the object sitting right in front of you, doing the thing you imagined it would do! It creates a special kind of joy, a feeling unmatched by pretty much any other other kind of activity.
In this class students will first learn how to design physical objects for solving problem related to robotics, and then learn how to bring those creations to life using 3D printing. We will start from the basics, and take them on a journey of increasing application to real-world robots. At the end of the course, each student will an intuitive understanding of which situations 3D design and printing are applicable, and how to use those skills to solve real problems.
- 3D design using Autodesk Fusion 360
- Solid modeling
- Designing gears
- How 3D printers work, different materials
- Design and print several everyday objects
- Design and print robotics models with increasing complexity
Social Distancing Policy
We have worked hard to create a safe setup that minimizes risk:
Masks are now optional
Reasonable social distancing will be encouraged and unnecessary huddling will be discouraged
We recommend each student bring their own water bottle.
What To Bring
- Each student must bring his/her own Mac Or Windows laptop with sufficient free disk space, and administrative rights to install Autodesk Fusion 360
