Adult 3D Printing 101: Belt Buckles

  • MODA 1315 Peachtree Street Northeast Atlanta, GA, 30309 United States (map)

Join us on Sunday, February 18 from 12:30 - 2 p.m. for a special Introduction to 3D Printing Workshop, where we’ll be learning the ropes of 3D modeling by making our own belt buckles!

Belt buckles are a functional way to add personality to an outfit. In this class you’ll get to create a belt buckle design of your own to get 3D printed. We ask that you bring a belt you would like to create a belt buckle for with you to the class.

Whether you’re a wiz-kid on the computer or haven’t so much as opened a spreadsheet in eons, our resident 3D printing expert/wizard/knight/ninja, Neil Miller, will walk you through the basics of a browser-based 3D modeling program called Tinkercad. You’ll learn all you’ll need to know to design one belt buckle to dazzle your friends with. By the end of the class your creation will be ready to go to print, and in just one week you’ll be able to pick it up at MODA.

Participation and Materials Fee: $30 for non-members, $25 for MODA members.
This fee covers everything you need to bring home your own 3D printed belt buckle. Fee also includes admission to MODA’s current exhibition, Designing for a Playful City.
