THIS COURSE RUNS OVER TWO EVENINGS — WEDNESDAY 13TH JUNE AND WEDNESDAY 20TH JUNE 18:30 UNTIL 21:00.
CREATE A SIMPLE 3D MODEL USING FREE SOFTWARE AND LEARN HOW TO GENERATE SLICES FOR LASER CUTTING
Whether you’re looking to sample 3D objects as prototypes or you just fancy making a unique sculpture for your home, learning how to slice a 3D design as your starting point.
Using open source software (free software available for anyone to download online) and corrugated card as a building material, makes this method an ideal way to start tinkering with 3D prototyping without breaking the bank.
You’ll get to know the basics of open source 3D software, an essential tool for any budding digital maker.

This workshop is suitable for everyone, including young makers aged 11+. All under-18s must be accompanied by an adult (all participants need their own tickets).

WHAT YOU'LL LEARN
— The concept of slicing to create 3D objects
— The basics of Tinkercad
— Creating files ready for the laser cutter
— Induction to the HPC laser cutter
Gemma May Latham is a participatory artist/maker who interprets textiles through digital and analogue processes. Gemma creates interventions and installations that explore traditional craft skills. She embraces processes that are intrinsically slow, creating a calming effect that allows time to connect with both process and material. The process of making and this experience is far more important to me than any physical outcome.
