City Tech is excited to offer an evening course in 3D printing open to students and professionals alike. The course will run from 6pm to 9pm on Tuesday nights for 9 sessions, starting October 1st and running through November 26th. The course will take place at NYCCTfab, a state of the art fabrication facility in downtown Brooklyn.
Over the past decade, design disciplines ranging from architecture to industrial design to fashion have seen an incredible increase in their ability to rapidly produce physical parts directly from 3D models, a phenomenon collectively referred to as "digital fabrication." 3D printing in particular is currently undergoing explosive development, due in part to the proliferation of personal desktop 3D printers and web-based 3D printing services, both of which allow hobbyists and professionals alike to affordably manufacture custom designs. The additive, or "building-up," nature of 3D printing offers an ease-of-use and freedom of form that simply can't be found in subtractive fabrication technologies such as laser cutting or CNC machining, making it a suitable gateway for design professionals interested in learning more about design for manufacture. This course will cover the fundamentals of digital modeling for 3D printing, file preparation and output methods for multiple types of 3D printers, and best practices in 3D printer operations.
