Create Your Second 3D Models with OnShape

★ This workshop is part of the OnShape Certification Track (2/3) ★

This course picks up where our Introduction to Solid 3d Modeling with OnShape left off, so we strongly recommend attending that class first.

Learners continue to explore Onshape, an agile, cross-platform, cloud modeling application that can be used to easily produce infinitely configurable parts.  You will extend your knowledge of solid modeling and Onshape by learning more advanced tools.  We will also learn not just how to make parts, but machines from those parts (called assemblies) and simulate their motions.

3D Printing

3D printing at Duke is designed to be simple and accessible.  It's our belief that there should be as few barriers between the designer and the hardware as possible.  With that in mind, we have created this primer for accessing and using the 3D printing portal that powers the CoLab and many of our other partner labs.
