Onshape I – Intro to Onshape – Design a Kazoo. Suggested class fee $20 donation with members receiving $10 off. Payments can be made in person or ahead of time at https://pay.reforge.io (enter class name in the notes section).

Join Cody and learn the cloud based, free use, CAD (computer aided design) software Onshape. Onshape is geared towards mechanical design, so that is what we will focus on. This class requires zero experience in CAD, product design, or even manufacturing. Come with an open mind and a willingness to unleash your imagination!

In this class, Onshape I – Introduction to Onshape, we will be designing a kazoo! We will be discussing design basics, types of manufacturing, and learning the Onshape environment. We will be taking basic shapes, adding complex features, and creating a working device derived from a series of tools and methods that we will learn along the way.

Recommend bringing a laptop or tablet to follow along (tablet will need the OnShape app installed before coming).
