3D Printing & Design Related Classes in NYC @ 3DEA #3dthursday
Will you be in or around NYC in the month of February? Here is a great range of classes on a variety of topics related to 3D printing and design for 3D printing.
I will be offering a class Friday, February 8th from 7pm-8:30pm called “Designing Objects to Interface with the Real World” which will feature how to use open source design software Blender and OpenSCAD to create projects designed to interface with displays and other electronics — and how to share your design files so that others can benefit.
While the course will emphasize setting up Blender for CAD-like functionality, I will be joined by an OpenSCAD secret guest who will walk us through some elite best practices for creating parametric designs such as those now in place for the MakerBot Customizer on Thingiverse.com.
Here are details for all of the classes on offer at 3DEA:
Throughout the 3DEA pop up, we offer a fantastic lineup of classes, lectures, competitions and presentations. Learn more about what we’re offering by clicking on the pictures above. Like a 3D printer, our lineup is constantly evolving. Check back frequently, join us on Facebook and Twitter, or email the Openhouse team at [email protected].

Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!
Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!
The Adafruit Learning System has dozens of great tools to get you well on your way to creating incredible works of engineering, interactive art, and design with your 3D printer! If you’ve made a cool project that combines 3D printing and electronics, be sure to let us know, and we’ll feature it here!
Adafruit publishes a wide range of writing and video content, including interviews and reporting on the maker market and the wider technology world. Our standards page is intended as a guide to best practices that Adafruit uses, as well as an outline of the ethical standards Adafruit aspires to. While Adafruit is not an independent journalistic institution, Adafruit strives to be a fair, informative, and positive voice within the community – check it out here: adafruit.com/editorialstandards
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
Have an amazing project to share? The Electronics Show and Tell is every Wednesday at 7pm ET! To join, head over to YouTube and check out the show’s live chat – we’ll post the link there.
