Thank you to all our Toronto ACM SIGGRAPH members who joined our exclusive, member-only 3D Printing workshop hosted and delivered by Ryan Schmidt, Autodesk Research’s head of Design and Fabrication Research.  On Saturday, March 1st, 2014, we learnt how to tailor 3D models for easy, hassle-free 3D printing using Autodesk Meshmixer software (free download).  The Toronto ACM SIGGRAPH Chapter enjoyed an afternoon at the Autodesk Visualization Studio, designing and printing models using creativity and imagination! Thank you to the Autodesk team who generously volunteered their time, energy and amazing computer graphics 3D knowledge.  And the best part, every participant took home a small, 3D printed souvenir of their own design!!  See more photos of this event on our Facebook album!
