Introduction to CAD (Computer Aided Design) - Fusion 360

Want to learn OpenSCAD, a powerful and versatile 3D modeling program that runs on code? It’s easy to pick up even if you’ve never coded before! This pop-up is for beginners; no coding experience is required. You will need to bring a laptop with OpenSCAD already installed ( If you have installation issues, plan to arrive ~10 minutes early so the instructors can help you troubleshoot.

After attending the 90-minute pop-up you will be able to:

  • Understand how to manipulate basic shapes in OpenSCAD
  • Design a 3D model with inset text in OpenSCAD
  • Export a model out of OpenSCAD for 3D printing
  • Be familiar with resources online to jump-start your next OpenSCAD project

This pop-up is led by Rebecca Jaszczak, a PhD Candidate in the UCSF Biomedical Sciences program.
