Learn how to use web-browser based OnShape to make parametric 3D models.

OnShape is a fast and powerful browser-based 3D design software. We will teach you the basics to create simple shapes that can be 3D printed & machined. OnShape is similar to SolidWorks / Fusion360 but much faster and more accessible.

In this workshop, we will go over:

– How to navigate the 3D space

– How to create a sketch

– How to create parameters

– How to create solids from the sketch

– How to export your designs for 3D printing or laser cutting

IMPORTANT: Bring your laptop to class, with a mouse and Google Chrome installed.

Highly suggest getting a free OnShape account ahead of the class.

Before the workshop, sign up at www.OnShape.com and request a free hobby account. Sign up to try the pro version, then click on the hobby account.
