Made with SketchUp, printed at Hive76

We are offering a class on how to use Google’s free 3D program SketchUp. SketchUp is not the most powerful CAD program out there, but its intuitive design and price make it a great start if you are curious about conjuring solid objects out of plastic and bytes.

This class will run Saturday, February 2/26 from 10am to 3pm at Hive76

You will learn:

  • How to make simple stuff in SketchUp
  • How not to ruin a model by poking holes in it, what “manifold” means.
  • The basic process of FDM 3D printing
  • The limitations of the Makerbot

And most importantly, you get to print and take home a thing!
