Course Series in
3-D Printing, Visualization, and Agile Product Prototyping

This program focuses on mastering agile product design, product sculpture, and prototyping with 3-D printers. Participants are taken through a series of hands-on in-class activities to familiarize them with the process of product ideation, realization of their designs digitally, 3-D animations of their designs, and the 3-D production of product prototypes using 3-D printers.

Supplies to be purchased by the student: Students are required to purchase (or already own) the following software: Pixologic ZBrush and ZSpheres, Autodesk Mudbox, SOLIDWORKS, DynaMesh, and 3-D computer graphics software that saves objects in the STL (stereolithography) format. As well, students must own or have access to a laptop, a tablet, tablet pen, and an external hard drive.

Important Note: The 3-D printing of student product design is available for an additional fee.

For more information, contact Alex Ferworn, Academic Coordinator, at aferworn@ryerson.ca.

Those who successfully complete this course series are eligible to earn a Professional Development Award from The G. Raymond Chang School of Continuing Education.
