Description

Description

3D printing has revolutionized the design and manufacturing production workflow, making the creation of design prototypes as easy as pushing a button. Inventor software has been a central tool in this revolution, enabling designers and engineers to create and iterate their design faster than ever before. This course will step through the process of developing, printing, and iterating the design of a real product prototype. Quad copters and drones are used every day for a variety of purposes, from videography to inspecting large tanks. Many drones leave the blades exposed and a single hit into a surface can easily damage both the blades and the drone. Here you will step through the process of designing blade guards for a popular drone quadcopter, seeing the steps and different phases of the design used to create a 3D printable final product.

Steven Schain

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.
