This workshop is being run on Wednesday 7th December from 1.45pm - 4.30pm
About this Event:
If you've ever thought computer aided design (CAD) and 3D printing would be useful to the work that you do, but are unsure of how to do it or where to start then this is the workshop for you! TinkerCAD is a an easy to use, free computer aided design tool that is perfect for first time 3D modelling users who are looking to generate basic 3D objects with an emphasis on 3D printing. This workshop will cover how to create objects using additive and subtractive processes in TinkerCAD, building upon these basic concepts to create more complex geometries. This will be followed by a 3D printing and 3D scanning demonstration at the Engineering Workshop. Enclosed footwear MUST be worn in order to enter the Engineering Workshop.

A little bit about us......
We are researchers, training researchers! We get you! and would like to embrace you into our Community. Please feel free to swing by our new space called "Co - Lab", located in Frank Tate, Room 101 ( opposite Tsubu) You are welcome anytime and we would love to see you there!
Research Platforms provides, builds and maintains ICT infrastructure for researchers, in particular cloud compute infrastructure and data storage infrastructure. Enabling data-driven research and the effective use of IT is at the centre of everything we do. We service more than 3,000 researchers from all disciplines across Parkville, within Victoria, and nationally.We work closely with key research support units including Faculty IT teams, the Melbourne eResearch Group, the Library, and other Infrastructure Services departments.
As well as providing underlying infrastructure services, we also work with researchers to provide a range of training, engagement and community building activities aimed at both maximising usage of the facilities, and maximising the value researchers get from them. By building community infrastructure in this way, we connect researchers with each other, with the supplied infrastructure, and with related infrastructure and services such as NCI, Pawsey, VLSCI, etc.
