Yesterday, the Pivot design team made the trek through a Toronto blizzard to the Digital Innovation Hub at the Fort York Toronto Public Library. Our mission? To learn as much as we could about 3D printing—an emerging technology that will soon be common place.
Once there, we were greeted by our instructor—James—who started the certification session by scanning each of us, rendering us in 3D on the computer.
Once we had sent our 3D selfies to print (printing one took about an hour), we played around with some 3D rendering software. We were also introduced to the programs OpenScad and Sculptris.
