3D printing has become easier than ever! Our first class on 3D modeling will teach you how to use Photoshop 3D tools to create printable models.

You’ll start with a simple hand drawing of a monogram (or another object of your own design), extrude it into a 3D shape and modify the object. We will digitize your model for you to print, or you can bring your own laptop with Photoshop CC or CS6 for a follow-along tutorial.

Please join us in the Makerspace this Friday, July 24th at 6 p.m. Whether you are an Adobe pro, or you’ve never touched graphic design software before, you will enjoy the new easy-to-use tools that bring 3D printing within your grasp.
