3D PRINT BIG!
9 January 2017 - 13 January 2017
The Milanese FabLab Opendot and WASP – World’s Advanced Saving Project, are offering a professional course that will focus on all aspects of BIG 3D designs, as part of the summer camp program campoBASE, at BASE Milano.
Participants will learn how to design models for extra-large printers (with an operational volume of one cubic meter); they can be used to print chairs, lamps, toys, tools and accessory items that would otherwise be impossible…. Because, in this case, size definitely matters.
Two top experts will be involved in the program: Alessandro Ranellucci, software creator and developer for the 3D printing program Slic3r, who will explain how to generate the G-Code and how to manage large-size machinery. And Dario Pizzigoni, founder of TreeD Filaments, who will introduce the world of polymers to the participants, explain the characteristics of these materials and identify which of them can be used in printing; he will illustrate the results and demonstrate what properties can be achieved.
The course has been organized with an alternation of theory and practical applications, a series of lectures and activities of design and collective revision, focusing on the self-production of the articles designed and printed in large formats.
The course is directed to designers, companies, makers, entrepreneurs, designers, architects, engineers, technicians, the curious and the people passionate about 3D printing.
Basic knowledge of 3D modelling and 3D printing is useful but not essential.
Max 15, min. 7 (The possible cancellation of the course will be notified on time.)
On completion of the course, participants will be issued with an attendance certificate signed by the instructors:
– Enrico Bassi, Gianluca Pugliese / Opendot
– Massimo Moretti / WASP
– Nicola Schiavarelli / WASP
– Giorgio Gurioli/WASP
– Alessandro Ranellucci / Slic3r
– Dario Pizzigoni / TreeD Filaments
