Halloween 3D Design Workshop @ The Yard

Another great chance to learn about 3D modeling for a MakerBot! Liz Arum and Jon Santiago will be teaching the course. This will take place at The Yard, a Brooklyn co-working space. Here’s what you can expect to learn:

During this day-long intensive workshop you’ll learn how to make and personalize 3D models with Blender and Makerware.

No prior modeling, computer or printing experience is necessary.
