You will explore how to create simple forms and realistic designs in 3D through the free software, Autodesk Fusion 360. You will also be introduced to Cura, a software that transforms your designs into reality through the power of 3D printing. 

Through this workshop we will show you how to:

  • Design simple forms and objects in 3D
  • Save your design in the correct format to be uploaded onto 3D digital fabrication machines, such as 3D printers and CNC machines, and understand the many possibilities of 3D digital fabrication.
  • Render your designs to make your objects look realistic and professional
  • Find open source (accessible to everyone) designs online

By taking part in this workshop, you will gain a Smart Citizens Digital Badge that can be added to your CV, email signature or LinkedIn profile to highlight your new skills in digital design and fabrication.

This event is part of the iMayflower project and has been supported by The Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, who fund the Cultural Development Fund, which is administered by Arts Council England.
