This class will guide the student through the process of optimizing a few example models to be ready for 3D printing using Inventor software and its 3D printing tools.
- Learn how to identify what methods of rapid prototyping exist today (FDM, SLS, SLA)
- Learn how to identify what type of geometry is best suited for 3D printing
- Learn how to orient models in space for printing and subdivide the model if necessary
- Learn how to add support material and determine adequate fill rates
