3D Design for 3D printing (Beta)

Sign Up for the 3D Design for 3D printing Presale. Learn how to build your own 3D printer, design parts, and 3d print them.

This is the pre-sale page for the course that was funded on Kickstarter. This course is still being made and content will be available in November of 2016.

Learn how to design for 3d printing and also build your own 3D printer. Ideas are a dime a dozen. So why is it that some get created and others don't? A lot of it has to do with implementation. Most ideas usually are just that, an idea. They never end up being a physical prototype because most people just don't know how to make them or they can't afford to hire a professional.

Dyson developed 5,127 prototype designs before he landed on the world famous Dyson vacuum. To be an inventor you need to explore and build things.

If you ever wanted to be an Inventor, Engineer, Entrepreneur, Designer, Artist, Tinkerer, or Maker. This the perfect course for you.

With today's technology advancement you can design your own parts and send them off to an online 3D printing service or you can make them at home with your own 3D printer. The problem is that there isn't any information out there, that will take you from not knowing anything at all to designing and printing your own 3D parts.

This is a complete course on how to 3D design, 3D print, and build your own 3D printer. You will be learning how to take your ideas and make them into a physical prototypes.

This course will be entirely project based, so the you will start by designing your own very simple cabinet knob to eventually creating a full multi-part assembly. You also will be learning how to build your own 3D printer.
