 3D Designer Classes @ the Library

“Imagine the Possibilities as a 3D Designer!”  Free 3D Printing Classes at the Darlington County Library System

“Imagine the Possibilities as a 3D Designer!” is a series of four free classes designed to inspire adults and business community employees to become creators of useful and artistic 3D objects so that may enrich their lives, their business, and their community.  The Darlington County Library System is offering participants introductory training and the resources necessary to achieve basic proficiency in 3D design and printing within two-months.  Our goal is for these new 3D designers to promote the usefulness and benefits of the 3D object creation and printing in their lives, businesses, and of those services available at the Library for community use.

Those who participate may learn demonstrable skills that could qualify the individual for a job, open up a new world of artistic expression, or inspire a unique niche business.  The skills include:  

1)    Design principles that an artist and drafter needs to understand spatial relationships to bring elements together in one design.

2)    Mathematical calculation related to weights, timing, and costs.

3)    Entrepreneurship in identifying products with potential commercial value that can be sold for profit as part of a small business.     

The four free classes will give you everything you need to know to get started in 3D object design and printing!

1)    Design Basics – the basic concepts of 3D object creation, software, and hardware introduced

2)    Designing with 3D Builder – the basic concepts of 3D object creation with 3D Builder software

3)    Using 3D Builder to Modify Objects from Thingaverse – the basic concepts of 3D object modifying objects obtained from Thingaverse with 3D Builder software

4)    3D Object Printing – the basic concepts of 3D object printing and printers
