3D Printing Workshop: Visualizing 4 Dimensions

Curious about 3d-printing or the shape of 4-dimensional space? Join us this October for a four week workshop introducing 3d printing as a lens for viewing 4-dimensional objects. Participants in this workshop will learn how to model 4-dimensional objects in software and generate 3d shadows suitable for printing. At the end of the workshop each participant will generate their own shadow to print and keep. Previous experience is not required, though some familiarity with the Python computer programming language is helpful.

Interested students should come to the first workshop meeting on Wednesday, October 5 from 1pm to 2pm in SEO 706 to watch the 3d printer in action. Subsequent meetings will be Wednesdays in October.
