This complimentary course, originally presented at the SIGGRAPH 2013 conference, covers the basics of 3D computer graphics in a friendly and visual way, without math or programming. The course is introductory level and it’s mostly made up of live demonstrations, because computer graphics is a great way to teach new ideas. Topics include the basic principles and language. The course is presented by Andrew Glassner from The Imaginary Institute.

SIGGRAPH 2014, the world’s largest international conference and exhibition on computer graphics and interactive techniques will bring together thousands of professionals, 10-14 August 2014, Vancouver, Canada.
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! We also offer the MakerBot Digitizer in our store. 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!
