Event Details

This workshop will begin with a demonstration of two handheld 3D scanners, the Artec Eva and Space Spider. Andy Greyson will walk through how to set up the environment, capture the data, and process the scans. He will also provide tips to efficiently utilize the variety of tools included in the software.

The second half of the workshop will focus on 3D printing during an interactive Q&A with Doug Daniels. You will also see two 3D printers from the UCLA Library Lux Lab in actions: the MakerBot 5th Gen (a fused deposition modeling printer) and Form 2 (stereolithographic printer).

Technologists from the Digital Research Consortium will also be available to discuss 3D modeling for research projects.
