Here’s your hands-on opportunity to experience the fundamentals of graphic design, architecture, product development, and biological processes using a variety of open-source software applications, including Sketchup, Inkscape and Blender. We’ll spend 11 weeks using the MakersFactory machinery to 3-D print and laser-cut lamps, cards, toys, and stickers plus use the laptop computers onsite to create animations and models. Join us for this educational, fun-filled weekly class.
Date: September 25th – December 11th,2012.
$500 PROMO PRICE! Just $330 for 11 week session. Payments made in installments of $110 every four weeks.

SketchUp is a 3D modeling program optimized for a broad range of applications such as architectural, civil, mechanical, film as well as video game design — and available in free as well as ‘professional’ versions. The program highlights its ease of use, and an online repository of model assemblies (e.g., windows, doors, automobiles, entourage, etc.) known as 3D Warehouse enables designers to locate, download, use and contribute free models. The program includes a drawing layout functionality, allows surface rendering in variable “styles,” accommodates third-party “plug-in” programs enabling other capabilities (e.g., near photo realistic rendering) and enables placement of its models within Google Earth.
Time: October 2nd, 6-8pm
