3D Printing & Design

Design and printing of 3D spaces and objects

Computer-aided design (CAD) has been a staple of engineering design for decades. More recently, emerging technologies such as 3D printing and 3D scanning have begun to revolutionise the way we record and manufacture spaces and objects.

At University of Melbourne there are many resources available for researchers who wish to employ rapid prototyping, 3D design and artifact digitisation. Research Platform Services offers several trainings in popular tools such as Inventor, Fusion360, 3DSlicer and TinkerCAD to help get you started in these exciting areas of futuristic innovation.

Our courses are FREE. To attend you must be from an AAF institution (this includes University of Melbourne and surrounding institutes).

Emilie Walsh (@emilouwalsh) is a PhD candidate in Fine Arts at the Victorian College of Arts, where she uses 3D modelling and 3D printing as part of her practice. She learnt these tools by coming along to Research Platform Services for an introductory workshop. She now teaches TinkerCAD, 3D scanning and 3D printing.
