Autodesk 123d recently had a halloween competition. It was to build a pumpkin in Autodesk 123d. I participated and some people won a Autodesk t-shirt. Luckily for me, I won a shirt. It is a pretty cool shirt I must say. I have about half a zillion of Autodesk shirts because my dad goes to Autodesk University every year and gets a few. He saw Ricky Q from VEX there.
Anyway, they are hosting another challenge! The participants receive a one year free ‘Instructables’ pro membership. The challenge can be found here.
I encourage everyone to try it. 123d is a pretty basic tool for learning CAD and is Autodesk newest products (I am pretty sure)!
Wow, thanks Drbayer for that timely post!
I just yesterday downloaded Autodesk Professional (Free for Students), and am pretty clueless on how to use it; Autodesk 123D should be a great tool to help me get started! (Plus the challenge provides good motivation too )
Autodesk tutorial videos, nice! I was wondering if there were any of those made by VEX students/mentors
Rick TYler, thanks for the reminder! I notice that there are still some categories that have no submissions yet. Is that accurate?
thanks for this valuable information for us.
The Technology of printing physical 3D objects from digital data using vertical axis manufacturing process is called “additive manufacturing.”
The amount of material, the rotation of the platform and the design of the object is administered in a computer controlled environment.
This technology allows for complex shape, size and dimensions which are not easily or economically available using traditional manufacturing tooling methods. 3D printing services india allows low cost production of highly specific, low volume products or mass markets quicker.
