About the Course
Learn to use 3D printing software to design and create your own pendants, earrings, rings and bracelets - download free from our website. The course is on a one-to-one basis.
If you want to be in the jewellery trade as a designer and seller of modern jewellery or you simply want to create designs for yourself and your family then you should be learning how to create your own designs using apps such as Fluid Designer for 3D Printing.
If you are completely new to the idea of designing jewellery and want to be up and running quickly and easily you should seriously consider attending one of our Jewellery Design Courses. Learn how to create complex mesh objects quickly and easily (drag-and-drop) to generate 3D objects that can be printed in plastic, steel or silver & gold.
Our Fluid Designer Jewellery Design Courses are a one stop shop where we will teach you how to:
a) create rings, pendants, bracelets, etc. using Fluid Designer for 3D Printing software – Fluid Designer is based on Blender which is the most commonly used app for 3D Printing.
b) export and repair printable files for uploading to a 3D printing service such as Shapeways.
Your tutor, Paul Summers, has 30 years teaching experience in the FE Sector and has published over fifty training books. He has also helped in the development of the application, Fluid Designer for 3D Printing, that you will use.
You will need to bring your own Windows 10 or Apple Mac Laptop so that you can do the course and also so that we can help install the free software for you. N.B. You will not need to purchase any specialist equipment to create your own designs as you can simply go to an online 3D printer such as Shapeways to get your jewellery made at reasonable prices for most items, e.g. rings are typically £35 in premium silver.
You can view Paul's website via the link button above where you can download the software that he will use on the day (Fluid Designer for 3D Printing). You can also find him on Facebook and Twitter at Fluid Designer. You can also view the type of item that you will be able to create on the day and also watch videos of how easy it is to make jewellery with Fluid Designer - please see the website for the Shapeways link.
