This Fall, starting Octobert 3rd, FabLab Wageningen offers a repeat of our 8 week Arduino course on popular demand. The course will be on 8 Tuesday evenings and is presented by local Arduino expert Arthur Rep. Please see our ‘Arduino’ page for more details.
Design course Sketchup
We will begin at the very beginning, so prior CAD-drawing experience is not necessary, although it may come in handy. During the course we will alternate between short explanation sessions and design exercises. These exercises can be done at you own speed and level, so the fast learners or more experienced users will have enough design challenges to practice with. Some example of exercises are to design a Rietveld chair, a house and a drinking glass. Two experienced instructors are happy to answer any questions and help out where necessary. Since we have limited time available we will not be actually printing or lasering anything during the course, but off course you are free to come back anytime during open-hours on Saturday afternoons to machine your design.
The costs are 40 Euro for subscribers and 80 Euro for others. The minimum number of participants is four, and the maximum is ten.
Please refer to the agenda for the date and time of the next course.
Register for the course by sending a mail to email@example.com and by transferring the course fee to NL60 TRIO 0254 7015 58 Stichting FabLab Wageningen, and mention your name and the Sketchup course.
During the course you’ll get basic theory and hands-on with the laser cutter, vinyl/sticker cutter and the 3D-printers. The goal is to have done all the steps in the design process: design, correct machine settings, and finally building your design. Our experienced teachers get you on track and are available for all your questions.
To make your own design you have to learn to work with drawing/CAD software. During the course we’ll use Sketchup (for 3D design) en Inkscape (for 2D vector design). These software tools are chosen because they are freely available, are easy to learn, and have plenty of tutorials available online. If you know other tools like Adobe Illustrator, AutoCAD or Solidworks you can also use those.

During this special evening, which was organized by Vivianne Veenemans who are professionally involved with 3D scanning, we were initiated into the world of 3D scanning.
