Team Tutorials

What Are We Planning?

If meeting has already been recorded, the title will be a link to the Youtube video.

Team rules, who we are, how we operate, and more!

Where and why to use 3D printing, where it’s used in industry, additive manufacturing, slicing software, and public CAD repositories.

What CAD is, what Onshape is, Extruding, Filleting, MKCAD, Importing, how to make basic parts, and the importance of naming conventions.

You’ll learn about the basics of Java, including classes, variables, and naming conventions. We’ll also show you how to use Codecademy so you can practice on your own.

We’ll be talking about pocketing, Onshape files, getting files ready for the laser cutter, going more in-depth with Part Studios and Assemblies, and review concepts covered in the last CAD lesson.
