This 3D modelling course introduces the general operations of Sketchup and teaches how to model 3D objects and print them on a 3D printer. It covers setting up your workspace, downloading useful tools, navigating the workspace, creating 3D objects then exporting them ready for 3D printing.
Students will get a demonstration of 3D printing at the end of the course.
The course covers the following items:
Set up workspace, download useful tools.
Navigation around the 3d environment
Drawing of 3D shapes and joining them, check and repair any faults.
Advanced tools, follow-me, outline trace.
You will design two functional objects on the course and export them ready to print.
Grouping, components and layer organisation.
Load 3D file into printer and 3D printer demonstration.
