This course is designed to help you understand the essential functionality of Onshape so you can get your ideas off of scratch paper and onto a 3D printer. You'll walk through creating 3D models of household objects.
This course, Onshape Essentials - Basic Part Modeling for Makers, you'll learn to leverage Onshape to create real-world objects from idea to 3D printed model. You'll begin this course by learning the sketching and constraint essentials used in Onshape. As the course progresses, you'll learn how to create a variety of household objects, including a chip clip, a knob, a toilet paper holder, a towel hook, and even a vacuum attachment. After the CAD of each model is complete, you'll see how to 3D print each model. Previous experience with Onshape isn't required. Software required: Onshape
Eric is an owner and operator of two golf courses located in Utah. In his free time he loves building things. In April 2015 he began using CAD software, intent on creating a new product for the golf industry. He's been addicted to CAD ever since.
Course Overview Hi everyone. My name is Eric Schneiter and welcome to my course, Onshape Essentials - Basic Part Modeling for Makers. I'm a maker and a machinist, and I enjoy using CAD, CAM, and my CNC mill as a hobby in my spare time. CAD software is a great way to put an idea into motion if you've got some sort of invention or problem solving device that you'd like to create. In this course, we are going to learn how to model objects, which can be used around your home. We will explore several of the sketching tools and constraints available in the Onshape workspace. We will extrude, sweep, revolve, and loft throughout the modules in this course, and at the end of each module you're going to get to watch a 3D printer go to work and print each of the models that we create. By the end of this course, you should be familiar with how to execute most of the essential commands in Onshape and turn your ideas into three-dimensional models. Before beginning this course, you should be familiar with how to access Onshape and work with web-based software. I hope that you'll join me on this journey to learn Onshape with the Onshape Essentials - Basic Part Modeling for Makers course at Pluralsight.
