3D Design Software – Autodesk Labs Project Shapeshifter: Generative Design Models Produced Via 3D Patterning Engine.

Project Shapeshifter is a free* technology preview from Autodesk Research.IL group created to assist designers and makers cope with the task of modeling complex 3D printable geometries in a simple way.

Project Shapeshifter is built on top of a 3D Patterning Engine which offers an alternative approach to generative design, avoiding scripting of any kind. The commands (design operations) used throughout a design sequence are captured separately from the object geometry, allowing repeat, alter, or apply to any given mesh object. The commands pattern includes a parametric object builder, subdivisions, transformations, offsets, and population information. Shapeshifter technology offers a simple slider based interface for shaping a 3D mesh object parametrically based on a selected topology. The 3D mesh object is automatically converted to a cellular shell where each cell can be populated with a selected component to form a 3D pattern. The populated mesh can be exported as .obj file for 3D printing locally or through a 3D printing portal online.

With Project Shapeshifter, exploring design alternatives is an easy and playful task. The simple and straightforward approach of Shapeshifter to Generative Design allows creating complex models for 3D Printing directly from the web browser.

Features:

  • Parametric Mesh Builder with more than 20 Degrees of Freedom
  • More than 30 pattern components
  • Share your design as a URL
  • Export design for fabrication (.obj file)

* Free technology previews are subject to the terms and conditions of the end-user license and services agreement that accompanies the software…

Adafruit has had paid day off for voting for our team for years, if you need help getting that going for your organization, let us know – we can share how and why we did this as well as the good results. Here are some resources for voting by mail, voting in person, and some NY resources for our NY based teams as well. If there are additional resources to add, please let us know – adafruit.com/vote

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.
