Learn how to use open-source 3D Computer Aided Design (CAD) to create 3D parts and assemblies. After this, learn how to export these to 3D printing software and create your own objects!
This course teaches you how modern computer software is employed to create 3D parts in a computer - a prerequisite for 3D printing. If you want to print 3D parts, and already understand some elementary graphics, then this course is for you.
