Ladies Learning Code is an organization that teaches programming and other technical skills in a beginner-friendly way. In July, they held a workshop at the TIFF Bell Lightbox to teach basic 3D modelling and 3D printing.
In the first half of the workshop, participants learned to use Autodesk Meshmixer by customizing pendants and magnets from a starting template.
The finished designs were then taken into the next room to be 3D printed, where I and others from the 3D printing community printed them on the spot. We also taught how 3D printing works, and showed off previously-made objects.
