Fall 2020 Pop-Up Class Series

The following pop-up classes are open to the Loyola and Notre Dame communities. If you have any questions, ideas for potential pop-up classes, or would like to teach a future class, contact Matthew Treskon at mtreskon@loyola.edu.

Drones, 3D modeling, and 3D printing

Thursday, September 19, 2019, 6 pm
LNDL IdeaSpace/Innovation Station
Instructors: Dave Opitz & Matthew Treskon

Mr. Treskon and Mr. Opitz used a DJI drone to take photos of the exterior of the Loyola Notre Dame Library. Those photos were fed into 3D modeling software to compute a virtual model of the library. The model was input into one of the Library’s 3D printers to create an exact duplicate of the building. Mr. Treskon and Opitz will discuss the challenges, lessons learned, and most importantly opportunities for Loyola and Notre Dame students to recreate this work on other buildings.
