From October 19th till 24th, 2020 the CGE team organised the first piloting of the D(at)YW project, featuring 3D Design & 3D Printing Course.
Georg Müller and Marina Bykova, the course instructors, have covered the topics of:
💻 computer-aided design (CAD);
🔩 3D modeling software;
🖨 and, of course, 3D printing.
The aim of this course was to give insight into 3D printing technology and practice with the participants working with 3D models. In the end, an exhibition took place in the Social Impulse Hub to show case the developed products.
On October 22nd, 2020 the participants of the 3D Design & Printing Course went for a study visit to Makerspace Erfurt, a local organisation, promoting and providing space to work with 3D printing, laser, metal and wood cutting technology.
On October 23rd, 2020 a distinguished guest came from Stuttgart to visit the course – Agam Kalra. By profession Agam is a structural engineer with a few years of experience in the architectural engineering and solar power industry. He competed his Master’s degree in structural engineering at the Bauhaus-Universität Weimar where during his studies he researched the idea of expanding the Bauhaus philosophy of “form follows function” and “form follows formulation” by including ideas of topology optimisation for 3D printed composite structures. He has share his experiences and fundings from the research and explain to participants what is the application of this technology.
Finally on October 24th, 2020 the Social Impulse Hub has opened its doors to the visitors for a first of its own exhibition in Erfurt about 3D design & 3D printing “Entdecke 3D-Druck” // “Exploring 3D Printing”. The exhibition show-cased objects, printed by the participants of the D(at)YW: 3D Design & Printing Course, the modeling process and, of course, the printers, which continued working for the whole duration of the event.
After the exhibition opening the participants of the course were awarded certificated with Open Badges, acknowledging their newly gained skills.
