You DO NOT need a 3D printer to take this course.
This course is for anyone interested in 3D, photogrammetry, and 3D printing.
We will create a one-of-a-kind gift from scratch and take through each step of the process together:
Create the hand-made gift (In the course example, we'll use plasticine, a kind of clay.)
Use a camera to take enough photos of the gift to use in Meshroom
Use Meshroom (a free software) to create a 3D object from our photos
Clean up our 3D object in Blender (a free software) for 3D printing
Upload our 3D model to Shapeways for printing
We will also learn the steps to make sure your object is at the correct scale if you want to print a 1:1 version of it.
To take this course you'll need:
A computer with Windows or Linux
To use Meshroom you need an NVIDIA video card
Two free softwares: Meshroom and Blender
Plasticine or substitute with your own hand-made gift
Money to use the Shapeways printing service. The course example cost me $27 to print.
Use referral code P2NHK to get 15% off your first Shapeways print.
This course is for:
Anyone interested in 3D printing. You don't have to have any previous experience in these subjects like 3D modeling to take this course.
We start from scratch for the absolute bners and the software is free to use so there's nothing to lose.
Please share your creations in the course Project and ask any questions you have in the Discussion area.
