Title:


    Design Engine Community Project - Generate Quick Adhoc Inventions to Explore at SIGGRAPH and in the Studio

Presenter(s):



Description:


    Since its release, “The Design Engine” has been played by groups of students, teachers, and individuals looking to spark self-guided training. “The Design Engine” is a direct response to educators’ requests for better classroom tools surrounding inspiration and 3D printing. By prompting participants to create their own original, imaginative works–instead of using pre-selected examples– teachers can keep their students better motivated through the process of mastering desktop 3D printing. We are hosting a brand new SIGGRAPH-edition of “The Design Engine,” a constantly evolving series of challenges hosted within the Studio. Participants of all backgrounds can join for a short startup round, or stick around to design and develop their projects using the tools available in the SIGGRAPH Studio Workshop.
