Workshop: Designing for 3D Print

3D printing is rapidly changing the way the that designers and makers think about design. James McBennett , co-founder and CEO of Fabsie is hosting a workshop in London this week for anyone interested in learning how to design and make their first 3D print — regardless of skill levels in 3D modelling.

The event will run on Thursday 8th November; 7.45-9.15pm and you can sign up at the eventbrite site. The workshop will cover the basic principles behind design, the free tools available to get started as well as touching on materials you can use and the actual process of 3D printing. All you need to bring with you is your own laptop so you can follow the class and instructions.

The event will be held at General Assembly in Clerkenwell, London, which is a campus for technology, design, and entrepreneurship. Full address details and map can be found at the eventrbrite site.
