CAD Wars: The last 3D Printer

General description

A long time ago in a galaxy far,

far away...

It is a period of CAD war.

Rebel printers, striking

from a hidden base, have won

their first victory against

the evil CADactic Empire.

During the battle, Rebel

spies managed to steal secret

plans to the Empire's

ultimate weapon, the DEATH

UNPRINTER, an armored space

station with enough power to

unprint an entire planet.

Now, you will have the

opportunity to create your

own and improved

Millenium Falcon to save the galaxy,

Hurry up! The galaxy is waiting for you!!!!

The aim of this course is to introduce participants in the computer aided design (CAD) and 3D print methods. You will be given some theoretical lessons in the field of design to understand the 3D print world before creating your own material, are you curious about it?

But there’s even more! In the unlikely case that you are not already writing your letter, maybe is because you are missing something all this will take place in MADRID!!! This beautiful city is the perfect place to try our world famous sangría, go for a tapas crawling or taking a siesta in the Retiro.

You will have the opportunity to live the BEST summer experience under Madrid’s blue sky, with the BEST people, the BEST adventures and the BEST spirit you have never felt before.
