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. You’ll learn how to use these tools, think about strategies to deal with interlocking parts and walk out with your very only glow in the dark or flickering LED holder. No prior modeling, computer or printing experience is necessary.
