3D Modelling and 3D Printing/Manufacturing

In this course, students learn how to use Blender, and how to design and produce 3D printed objects. This course is closely aligned with Tuft’s University Blender course. Those with a background in Python programming can apply their skills to the Blender environment to greatly expand the functionality of Blender. We have also taken the liberty of teaching students to use Unity and write UnityScript to develop simple 3D video games and 3D animations using the Blender software.  Students learn basic CAD (Computer Assisted Drafting) and CAM (Computer Assisted Manufacturing) in this course.
