This weekend TIFF Nexus had the pleasure of supporting the Ladies Learning Code Series, “a women-run not-for-profit group working to empower everyone to feel comfortable learning beginner-friendly technical skills in a social, collaborative way.” Also supporting this event were our uber-creative friends at ThingTank Labs, and the digital side of the workshop was led by 3D modeling expert Ryan Schmidt of Autodesk.
Participants first learned the ins and outs of 3D modeling using Autodesk MeshMixer (although Autodesk has a huge array of excellent consumer level 3D tools, including 123D), and then they had the opportunity to save their digital creation and get it printed in the next room.

One of the Ladies Learning Code leaders, Heather Payne noted there were more 3D printers in the one room than she’d ever seen. Here’s some pics of both the software workshop in our Computer Lab Learning Studio, and the menagerie of no-two-alike 3D printers brought in by the local community.
