Description

Description

Instead of sending your model plans out to a shop, why not make them yourself? This hands-on lab gives attendees of all levels familiarity with a suite of Autodesk® software designed to empower the DIY revolution and greatly simplify personal fabrication. Attendees are guided through 3 projects to prepare for 3D printing, computer numerical control (CNC) routing, and laser cutting. Whether you are an architect or an artist, you will leave with a keen understanding of why you would choose 1 fabrication method over another and how to use machines to make your designs real. Machine tools will be present in the lab.
