Throughout these lessons, we will learn how to design for rapid plastic injection molding as well as 3D printing. This will include taking advantage of design intent to help us create parts that are fully editable after the assembly has been created. We will also learn how to design internal bodies and assembly components into these parts. After generating our CAD model, we will take it to the next step with some realistic rendering. All of these techniques are currently sought after in the Industrial Design world and having a clear understanding about how plastic parts are taken from sketch to production will help you become a well-rounded designer. Software required: SolidWorks 2014, KeyShot 5.
Introduction and Project Overview Hi everyone. My name is Devin Sidell. I'm an industrial designer at Likuma Labs here in Philadelphia. My current and latest work include Biomeme's DNA thermocycler and an autorefractor for Smart Vision Labs called the SVOne. In this course, we are going to learn how to design products for rapid, classic injection molding, as well as 3D printing. Some of the key takeaways from watching this course include learning how to model products that comply with design intent, design parts ready for injection molding, or work internal components into the product, build simple and efficient assemblies, and perform basic, but essential, renders in KeyShot. By the end of the training you'll be able to design 3D printer-ready parts that can support internal components. These parts will also be engineered for the first steps of manufacturing. I'm excited to work with Digital-Tutors and share these techniques with you. So let's get started with the first lesson.
