An Introduction to OpenSCAD using Legos

Accepted Session
Long Form
Scheduled: Tuesday, June 21, 2016 from 3:45 – 5:30pm in B304


Learn 3D modelling with OpenSCAD through an hands-on tutorial for modelling Legos


OpenSCAD., is also known as “The Programmers Solid 3D CAD Modeller”

Come learn the basics of 3D modelling using OpenSCAD by building a 3D model of a Lego.

This will be a hands-on tutorial so everyone is encouraged to bring their laptop to try the tutorial or a model of their own choosing.

You will be able to use these basics to create basic 3D models and enclosures for projects you might be working on that you can 3D print later on.

You can download OpenSCAD prior to the session to try the hands-on portion of the session.
