WORKSHOP: Intro to 3D Modeling - Digitally Design a Ring
In this 2-day Intro to 3D Modeling workshop, students will use Tinkercad, a free, browser-based 3D modeling software to create a custom ring of their own design which will be produced in metal through the use of 3D printing.
The below studios will be offering this class across April and May 2018.

Lizz grew up in the Pacific Northwest where she spent her days learning, crafting, designing and making. Her long time love of textiles and sewing led her to New York where she pursued an education in Textile Development and Marketing and Accessories Design at the Fashion Institute of Technology.
During her first job after graduating she discovered her love of hardware engineering and further focused her career towards a hardware specific role. A little over two years after graduating, she landed her dream job as a hardware developer at Coach and spent several years developing hardware, traveling overseas to work with hardware suppliers and ultimately trained herself in Rhino 3D. Since working in 3D software, she has been able to fully realize her love of conceptualizing and engineering hardware for fashion accessories. Lizz currently oversees a small team responsible for the technical design and 3D prototyping of hardware and jewelry for the brands under Tapestry (formerly Coach, Inc.)

Need a little technical help? Hire Me!
Need help bringing your design idea to life? I specialize in rigid or organic 3D models of jewelry and hardware and have a strong background in metal (zinc and brass) manufacturing.
I'm a full-time 3D modeler and manage the 3D print lab for a major American handbag company, based in New York City. I'm responsible for the technical development of the company's hardware, jewelry and other related products. I hold a B.F.A. in Accessories Design from the Fashion Institute of Technology and have worked in the fashion industry for the past 10 years.
I can work from sketches, finished drawings, photos, and off of existing parts or other real-life references. I price projects by the hour and my quote includes your rights to the final model and high-quality (non-watermarked) renderings. I can offer guidance on manufacture-ability or 3D print-ability to ensure your design meets the requirements for your desired end-use.
