3D Printing Workshops
In the spring of 2012, Ladies Learning Code approached me and asked if I would teach a 3D design/print workshop. This was right at the start of the Makerbot home-3D-printer revolution, and so interest was very high. We ran the workshop using Meshmixer in June 2012, which to my knowledge was the first of its kind in Toronto. It was quite a success, and LLC went on to run several more, including one in their Girls Learning Code series. Many of these were taught by the folks at Hot Pop Factory (who were teaching assistants at the first workshop!), who also ran regular printing workshops at their studio. Since then, Meshmixer has become a standard tool in this kind of 3D printing workshop, and is used all over the world. I taught several more myself in Toronto, for the Toronto ACM SIGGRAPH Chapter and during the Lassonde Technology Faire at York University.
Although the materials are a bit dated now, the presentation slides from my SIGGRAPH workshop are still available here. For the original LLC workshop I developed some basic tutorial materials, which are also still online:
