Overview of the workshop

The one-day workshop will consist of a basic introduction about 3d modeling and printing with the aim of give to the participants the basic tools to design and 3d model basic controller elements.

The workshop is ideal for people and musicians who wants to start playing a bit with 3d modeling. A bit of experience with CAD modeling is a plus, but no experience is really required.

Tools used

During the workshop we will use the open source and cross platform software called Freecad. In this way participants will be able to explore on their own after the workshop without additional costs, plus of course the will of promoting open source culture.

We will also use Cura or Replicatorg (also opensource softwares) to interact with the 3d printer.

Each participant shall should bring his own laptop (with MacOS, Windows, Ubuntu or Fedora as OS) with freecad and Replicatorg and/or Cura installed and (very important!) a mouse, even if you have a fantastic mac multi touch track pad.

You can download Freecad visiting the download section of www.freecad.org and you can get replicatorg visiting www.replicat.org

About the instructor

“Chi ha ucciso Il Conte?” (“who killed the count?”) is specialized in developing the design of hand crafted electronic music instruments. His work consists in understanding the artist’s needs and translating them into a usable and expressive shape. Nick is skilled in using 3D printers, laser cutters and of course in applying finishes manually to the machine’s output, starting from an internship at STEIM in the Netherlands he already collaborated with the development of several electronic music instruments and sound installation all over Europe.

The maximum amount of participants for the workshop is 15.
