NYC College of Technology Continuing Ed 3D Design and Fabrication Course #3DThursday #3DPrinting


In you are in the NYC area this fall, check out this excellent continuing ed possibility from our friends over at NYCCTfab!

NYC College of Technology Continuing Ed 3D Design and Fabrication Course. Via Shapeways.

Instructor: Patrick Delorey

Dates: October 1, 2013 – November 26, 2013

Times: Tuesday evenings from 6pm – 9pm

Location: NYCCTfab Fabrication Lab at City Tech, 186 Jay St V813, Brooklyn, NY 11201 (map)

Subway: High St (A/C), York St (F)

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.

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!

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.

Join 7,500+ makers on Adafruit’s Discord channels and be part of the community! http://adafru.it/discord

CircuitPython in 2018 – Python on Microcontrollers is here!

Have an amazing project to share? Join the SHOW-AND-TELL every Wednesday night at 7:30pm ET on Google+ Hangouts.
