In the 3D area of the Studio, attendees are invited to work with state-of-the-art 3D data capture systems, modeling packages, and rapid prototyping equipment. In this creative environment, you can generate 3D digital objects either by modeling in the latest version of various full-featured software packages or by using 3D data capture devices to scan actual objects (bring an object, or yourself, or sculpt an object out of clay; we'll even provide the clay). Then your computer models can be "manufactured" three dimensionally (translated into physical reality) with a bank of rapid-prototyping machines, printed two dimensionally using various large and small format printing processes, or animated.
If you are a first-time user, the Studio's top-flight student volunteers are available to help you through the process, and a whole series of 3D tutorials is planned throughout the week. If you are a "jaded professional," you can do some intense comparison and tech-testing or take this opportunity to try doing things differently or more experimentally than you might in a normal work environment. This is a studio, after all. Dive in. Spend the day, or the week, investigating the latest in 3D data capture, modeling, and rapid prototyping.
