3D Printing, Moulding and Casting Workshop

3D Moulding

This event is now in the past.

***SOLD OUT***

3D printing is a great tool for rapid prototyping, but it’s not so efficient for mass-production. How do you turn an idea for a 3D printed object into endless, cheap copies?

In this 2 x 4-hour workshop we’ll step you through the basic workflow of taking an idea for a small 3D object into a reproducible resin model.

Starting with an intro to CAD, you’ll design a belt buckle or small brooch from scratch, followed by an induction on the 3D printers, and the printing of your design.
In the second session, you’ll prepare your model for casting, cast it in silicone, and then create uniform-coverage, resin copies using the rotocaster.

No prior knowledge is required, as we’ll take you through the whole process.

It is important to note, that this is a two-part workshop, and to complete your resin model, you’ll need to attend: Part 1 on Sunday 22 October 2017, and Part 2 on Sunday 29 October 2017.  Both days are 1.00 - 5.00pm.
