Description of Class: Learn how to use a laser scanner to paint an organic image into your next 3d print. Great projects with the 3D scanner include: Creating exact replicas and copies of any object that the lasers can paint over on the surface. Scanning the human face or creating prosthetic limbs and apertures for the human body. This tool will build a strong bridge between the CAD design world and detailed natural objects. Your mind is the only limitation to what this tool can do for your next project! 

What skills & tools will student learn: This course will go over the beginning of exposure to 3D animation, game engine creation, character design and the delicate operation of using this technology to construct an image into cyberspace from the real world. Students will operate the scanner and understand the limitations and the capabilities through the scan studio software.  The student will learn how the system works in depth and discover the modern day applications of reverse engineering and how it can provide a valuable tool for the next project! 

What will student leave with? Operational knowledge and possibly an STL file of an object they brought to class! (wink wink)

Ky Faubion

Hailing from Southern Oregon, Ky moved to the Bay Area in 2007. Shortly after becoming a self employed dog walker and business owner in San Francisco, he found his first makerspace in 2011 while attending the Maker Faire. “Tech Shop” became his home for the next six years. After learning and teaching just about all the curriculum over that time due to missing instructors leaving the space, he became a true veteran by filling in for as many classes as he possibly could successfully training over 1,000 people of all ages and abilities. He then went onto other spaces to share his tribal knowledge at places like Tesla in Fremont and the PiShop program at Google HQ in Mountain View. He loves originality and spends a lot of his waking hours brainstorming about the next fun project; especially with his friends at 180 Studios.
