Description

Description

The introduction of cost-effective, high-quality 3D printers is giving designers and engineers the ability to print prototypes right in their offices when they need them. The implementation of 3D printing into a design environment is becoming a reality for more and more design professionals. This course will explore the process behind developing an in-house 3D printing capability and what the cost/benefits are of doing so. Additionally, with the 3D printer landscape in constant flux, what are the benefits and drawbacks of the different technologies for model production? What materials are out? We will look at choosing a printer that fits your budget and needs, and, once you settle on a printer, what it takes to maintain it. This course will look at real-world examples and enable an interactive discussion of how you can use 3D printing in your office.

Steven Schain studied at Rochester Institute of Technology for film and animation, and he attended Asheville-Buncombe Technical Community College’s Entrepreneurship program in 2011. In 1990 he founded Spectralight Images, LLC, to produce 3D animation. He moved to Orlando, Florida, in 1990, and soon after began teaching 3D at Seminole State College of Florida. In 1997 he opened Gallery 611, and in 2000 he formed the Orlando Visual Artists League, remaining as president until 2004. In 1998 he became a training specialist for Autodesk, Inc., and he has contributed to Autodesk's certified courseware for 9 releases of 3ds Max software. He was a co-developer of the Autodesk Certified Instructor Program and of 3ds Max software’s fundamental standards. Now he develops 3ds Max and Maya software training courseware for CADLearning's online training, and he has continued teaching end users, companies, Autodesk University attendees, and others. Past trainees include The Walt Disney Company, Guess, and the United States Army. Spectra3D Technologies evolved out of Spectralight Images to provide 3D printer sales and support, and to offer an array of 3D printers, design services, and training.
