3D Printer Design Tutorial on Tuesday, November 7th, 7:30 p.m. at Danbury Hospital Auditorium
In 3D design, you create a picture of an item that you want to fabricate. The picture shows the shape with all the dimensions and details. The output from your 3D design can go directly to a 3D printer. Mike Kaltschnee returns to show us how to do 3D design. Bring a laptop, treat this evening as a class, and do Mike's tutorial training steps. Mike is a cofounder of the Danbury Hackerspace (https://danburyhackerspace.com), a non-profit corporation that provides 3D printers and other tools to its members. He has presented at DACS several times. Mike will demonstrate Tinkercad (https://www.tinkercad.com).
This will be the first “interactive DACS general meeting”! You can use any laptop computer, Windows or Mac, or even a Chromebook. All you need is a browser, because Tinkercad is not installed in the computer but rather simply runs in a browser. The hospital will provide guest internet access, and Mike will help attendees to connect to the hospital system. Or come without a laptop and just follow along. You will come away from the evening knowing what 3D is all about.
DACS General Meetings are free and open to the public. Members and prior attendees are encouraged to extend invitations to anyone interested in this topic.
General meetings are held at Danbury Hospital Auditorium. There is plenty of free parking in the guest parking garage adjacent to the auditorium. (Go to www.dacs.org to find directions and parking information).
