I’m planning an extra special 3D class in April. Helping me out will be Mr. Ray of computer center fame. We are teaming up to bring you the best class so far. The class covers (as always) the basics of 3D design software, Makerbot buttons and maintenance, and the tips for a perfect print. What is extra special is that we will be focussing on building a customized Lego block!
More news soon!
Here is a little bookmark I made to share with all my book/coffee/cat lovin’ homies. I modeled the lady off my therapist, who is one smart mentor. Feel free to download and distribute as you wish. Here is a PDF suitable for printing.
I’ve had the opportunity to give an intro to 3D design class several times now and each time I learn a little more. I am also surprised at how interest keeps building in the service. I have started surveying the folks who come to the classes to try to get an idea of where to grow the program. The last survey was pretty unanimous in that participants want more advanced training with CAD software. I used an old advertising trick that doctors hate to get them to fill out the surveys, I offered one free print to whomever completed a 5 question Survey Monkey questionnaire.
I realize it has been a second but I wanted o talk about Library Camp and the work I did to help promote it. Library Camp is what’s known as an “Un Conference” A free floating collaboration on scheduling a day that focuses on Library Issues, primarily tech related. This year’s marketing theme was a light hearted reference to the power of doughnuts as a draw. It was the motif that the planning committee came up with and I set about to visualizing it. After several iterations, we decided on little anthropomorphized pastries. I designed them to be as cute as possible. The design was turned into a poster, a tshirt and a short PSA.
