3D printing has opened up the gaming and miniatures world to far more people than ever before. This class gives you a practical workflow to go from a model that you find online or make yourself (people, monsters, armor, etc.) to a 3D model that can be printed using your own printer, or at any popular online 3D printing service.
The software explained in this class is a (short) section on Autodesk Fusion 360, and the balance of the class on Autodesk Meshmixer. Both applications are free to download and use, and are incredibly powerful.
You don't need any prior experience with 3D modeling or 3D design to take this course, and even if you know Meshmixer already this class goes into some great ways to use Meshmixer's tools to make the design process easy and fun.
Nick has earned the respect of his colleagues through hard work, dedication and vision through his 15+ years in the high-tech industry. Graduating from UC Santa Barbara with an English Major, he was hired into Sun Microsystems during the dotcom boom, and has held a number of technical roles at Sun, and more recently, at Oracle translating complex technical architectures into understandable ideas. Nick's skills go deep into both the technical understanding of the industry and the mechanics of 3D printing, and how this industry has the capability to inspire the world for the better. Nick co-founded "HoneyPoint3D" in 2013 with his wife, Liza. HoneyPoint3D offers classes for all skill and age levels, rapid prototyping, 3D Modeling, Scanning and Printing Services. They currently operate two locations in Oakland and San Mateo, with more future locations planned this year. Considered a 3D Printing retail expert, Nick has been interviewed on CNN, RT Television, San Francisco Business Times, KGO, most of the Bay Area newspapers and many more.
