This class will look at how we can apply animation techniques to 3D printing—from laying out geometry to hiding support structures to creating interesting new models. Animation can be a great design tool. This session features Print Studio, 3ds Max, and Maya. AIA Approved
Anyone interested in generating interesting content for 3D printing and applying existing tools in novel ways
Cory Mogk works in Autodesk Research on a variety of projects and collaborative partnerships. He also runs an innovation program to help people hack the system and bring their great ideas to life. Mogk started his career as a technical illustrator in engineering and he quickly gravitated to CAD and 3D design visualization. From there, it was a short trip to creating computer graphics for film, television, and games. He worked as an application consultant writing courses and training artists and programmers. With a solid understanding of the creation process and being passionate about customer needs, Mogk became the product design manager for Maya software and eventually the product line manager for Maya software and the Entertainment Creation Suites. A lifelong learner, Mogk has studied animation, architecture, business, computer science, improvisation, and music. Feel free to use any of these as a springboard to discuss the cool things that Autodesk Research is doing and potential collaborations.
With engineering changing rapidly and the development of additive manufacturing methods, designers and engineers are starting to push the boundaries of what is possible when designing and manufacturing components. Additive manufacturing has come on leaps and bounds over the last 5 years, with 3D printers now accessible to everyone at very low cost. More and more people are starting to turn their own ideas into reality. Using Fusion 360 and a desktop 3D printer we can now take art to part. In this half-day workshop, you will design and build a Fusion logo keyring. You will be walked through different modelling techniques within Fusion 360 that will allow you to explore and develop the design with the next generation of engineering tools. Technologies such as parametric design, T spline technology, and direct modelling will showcase the power of Fusion 360 and how quick it is to build complex parts.<br />
