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.
Additive manufacturing (AM) is one of the most disruptive and fastest-evolving manufacturing technologies available. How will you be prepared to take advantage of its benefits and adopt your 3D printing investments to where the industry is moving? Join the "Future of Additive Manufacturing" talk to learn about where AM is heading with new capabilities like generative design; how and why the software, materials, and machines that drive the industry are speeding adoption; and why all manufacturers and engineers should seriously consider AM as a viable, powerful, and unique alternative to traditional manufacturing techniques.
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 />
3D printing has revolutionized the design and manufacturing production workflow, making the creation of design prototypes as easy as pushing a button. Fusion 360 software has become an indispensable tool in this revolution, letting designers and engineers create and iterate their designs faster than ever before. This course will step through the process of developing, printing, and iterating the design of a real product prototype-learning the different phases of the design used to create a 3D-printable final product. Fusion 360 and Print Studio are used every day for a variety of purposes, from the office, to the house, to production and marketing. This course will explore the creation of a unique spinner toy that you can assemble, personalize, and take home with you. This session will feature Fusion 360, Print Studio, and a live 3D printing demonstration.
