Chrispell to Offer 3D Printing Workshops October 15 and 20

Posted on 10/7/2019 1:55:40 PM

The Scholarships Creating Opportunities for Applying Mathematics (S-COAM) program is offering two workshops on 3D printing led by John Chrispell of the Mathematical and Computer Sciences Department. The workshops will be held on October 16 and 23 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. in Stright Hall, room 220.

In these workshops you will first learn the basics of 3D printing, and then learn more about the mathematics needed for 3D printing.

Workshop 1: 3D Printing Basics, Wednesday, October 16, 6:30 p.m.–8:00 p.m., Stright Hall Room 220

In this workshop you will receive a basic introduction to using 3D printers. Demonstrations of both 3D model creation and printing will be shown using standard software tools. Workshop participants will have the opportunity to create 3D models that could be printed using standard 3D printers.

Workshop 2: 3D Printing From a Mathematical Perspective, Wednesday, October 23, 6:30–8:00 p.m., Stright Hall Room 220

This workshop will take a hands on approach to creating models for 3D printing. Participants will use notebooks to create 3D geometries that can be converted to file types that are acceptable for 3D printing. The focus of this workshop will be more on the mathematics needed for 3D printing, rather than the creation of complicated 3D printable models.

Space is limited due to the size of the computer classroom. If you are interested, please sign up online.

These workshops are sponsored by the National Science Foundation-funded Scholarships Creating Opportunities for Applying Mathematics (S-COAM) Program (Award #1742304) and the IUP Mathematical and Computer Science Department.
