Explore new frontiers in technology through 3D printing in the Tinkering Studio at the Fleet Science Center. Our next three-session workshop on computer-aided design (CAD) and 3D printing is coming up. The schedule is below. You'll get to design and execute the printing of your very own three-dimensional object! 

Presented by Otto Lai

Otto Lai began his professional career in New York as a modeler on MTV’s Celebrity Death Match and then as an animator on Nickelodeon’s Little Bill. Since moving to San Diego, he joined Legend 3D to work on Tim Burton’s Alice In Wonderland, and as Head Compositing Trainer helped prepare over 200 artists for Transformers 3: Dark of the Moon, Smurfs and other titles.

Want to know more about new 3D Technologies?

Look for dates for the next Tech Forum in the Tinkering Studio with build IT from San Diego State University.

Tech Forum is an opportunity to explore emerging technologies through hands on experimentation.  Participants in Introduction to 3D Printing and CAD Drawing have access to Tech Forum with admission to workshop.  

Built: Explore. Build. Educate

Build IT @SDSU Library is a student-run makerspace designed to foster creativity and innovation. build IT is a means to provide access to emerging technology for the SDSU community. It has quickly grown into a space that provides a physical location where anyone can gather to explore, build, and learn through sharing resources and knowledge, working on projects, and networking. Also, build IT gives SDSU students, known as Master Builders, the opportunity to gain valuable experience in mentoring, teaching, and collaboration.
