3D Modeling workshop

Duration2 hours
Age group+15 years old
Price12 €
Datestbd

Description:

  • What is 3D modeling?

3D modeling is the process of creating three-dimensional representations of an object or a surface. 3D models are made within computer-based 3D modeling software.

  • What do you learn?

Basic knowledge and practice of 3D modeling

Software: Tinkercad

  • How can you apply this?

Many industries utilise 3D modeling for a range of projects; there are likely loads of 3D modelled items we use without even realising its involvement. With 3D modeling, the opportunities are endless. It’s a truly versatile medium that can be used for an array of different areas. There are some common uses of 3D modeling:

Game development;

3D printing;

Architecture;

Medical/care;

Animation;

Product design;


3D Printing

Duration2 hours
Age group+15 years old
Price12 €
Datestbd

Description:

  • What is 3D printing?

3D printing is a new and accessible technique in technology and visual arts. In this workshop, the participants make the connection between art and technology and design themselves in 3D. They discover what they can do with this technology and become the creators of their own product. After a short explanation about the emergence and future of 3D printing in the Brainport region, participants get to work on their own design. The participants make a three-dimensional figure from a flat drawing with our Ultimaker 3D printer.

  • What do you learn?

techniques of 3D printers

how does the printer work

the printing program

Printing objects

Materials

  • How can you apply this?

3D printing is becoming popular in the design industry, you could use this technique to produce products as prototypes, in many shapes: in metal or plastic.

Laser cutting

Duration2 hours
Age group+15 years old
Price12 €
Datestbd

Description:

  • What is laser cutting?

Laser cutting is a CNC cutting process in which a high-powered laser is used to cut through or engrave materials.

In this process, a high-density light beam is created using material with an electrical discharge, within an enclosed container. Optics are used to focus the created laser beam onto the workpiece, effectively cutting it by melting, vaporizing, or burning through it. The movement of the laser beam is controlled using CNC technology.

  • What do you learn?

Laser-cutting / digital fabrication basics;

How does a CO2 laser cutter work + set-up for various types of projects;

Laser software fundamentals;

File preparation and customization with adobe illustrator for laser-cutting;

Which materials are used;

Safety and precaution for laser-cutter;

  • How can you apply this?

Laser cutting is used to optimize processes, applications, and production across a wide range of industries including electronic, automotive, medical, metalworking, woodworking, printing, packaging, HVAC and other specialty industries.

Arduino

Duration2 hours
Age group+15 years old
Price12 €
Datestbd

Description:

  • What is Arduino?

Arduino is an open-source electronic prototyping platform based on flexible, easy-to-use hardware and software. The Arduino is intended for artists, designers, hobbyists and anyone interested in creating interactive objects and environments.

The advantage of open source is that the available hardware and software can be completely adapted to your own wishes, the schematics and source code are available.

There is also a large and lively Arduino community that publishes many projects as open source. If you want to make a specific Arduino project and you google “Arduino” and what you want to make, chances are that someone has already made something similar. You can then take over his project and adapt it to your own wishes.

  • What do you learn?

Discover how small electronic systems are built and you will build and program them yourself;

Be able to name the most important electronic components and their function;

  • How can you apply this?

The Arduino board is connected to a computer via USB, where it connects with the Arduino development environment (IDE). The user writes the Arduino code in the IDE, then uploads it to the microcontroller which executes the code, interacting with inputs and outputs such as sensors, motors, and lights.

Plot cutting

Duration2 hours
Age group+15 years old
Price12 €
Datestbd

Description:

  • What is plot cutting?

Cutting plotters are technical devices which can be used to mechanically cut graphics, lettering and a variety of shapes from a variety of materials such as paper, thin wood, plastic, adhesive film, cardboard and rubber (e.g. for sealing rings). A vinyl cutter (sometimes known as a cutting plotter) is used to create posters, billboards, signs, T-shirt logos, and other weather-resistant graphical designs. The vinyl can also be applied to car bodies and windows for large, bright company advertising and to sailboat transoms.

  • What do you learn?

Find or make an image that you want to make into a sticker;

Using the Software – Inkscape;

Loading the Vinyl;

Using the machine

  • How can you apply this?

Vinyl cutters are mainly used to make stickers, signs, banners and decoration.

Other applications are image transfers to textile, like T-shirts or bags.

CNC milling

Duration2 hours
Age group+15 years old
Price12 €
Datestbd

Description:

  • What is CNC milling?

CNC milling is a machining process that utilizes computerized controls to manage the movement and operation of multi-point rotary cutting tools. As the tools rotate and move across the surface of the workpiece, they slowly remove excess material to achieve the desired shape and size.

  • How can you apply this?

CNC milling is used in a great variety of applications, ranging from hobbyist, to art & design and industrial.

Some of the most common industrial uses for CNC milling are in manufacturing and accessories, automotive components.


Soldering

Duration2 hours
Age group+15 years old
Price12 €

Description:

  • What is soldering?

Soldering is a joining process used to join different types of metals together by melting solder. Solder is a metal alloy usually made of tin and lead which is melted using a hot iron. The alloy is heated to high temperatures which then cools to create a strong bond.

  • How can you apply soldering?

Soldering is widely used in the electronics industry for electrical connections, such as joining copper on printed circuit boards. It is also used by plumbers to join together copper pipes. The reversible effects are why it is very useful in many industries, and you even see it employed in fashion.
