In this class Kim Lee presents an in-depth case study of the creation of the Hyperspace Madness Trilobot. Lee demonstrates its start as a robotic chassis in Inventor® software, through 2D concept art, and modeling in 3ds Max® software to fabrication using CNC milling, vacuum forming, and fused deposition modeling (FDM) 3D printing. Attendees get a behind-the-scenes view of all the processes that are involved in bringing the bot from digital concept to physical reality.
- Use Inventor files as a foundation for modeling in 3ds Max
- Explain how surface modeling applications such as 3ds Max can be used in the fabrication process
- List and describe the benefits and limitations of subtractive and additive fabrication methods
- Harness the benefits of the maker movement without having an engineering degree
