Dasyn will co-organize a 3D-printing workshop at ICTCO (November 6, 2016)

Yasusi Kanada, who is the CTO of Dasyn, will be the lecturer of a workshop organized by Tokyo Maker and Dasyn. The workshop title (in Japanese) is “Let's create lamp shades with a 3D printer”. In this workshop, participants will design (select a design of) a brilliant, light, and transparent lamp shade, and print it using a 3D printer. Lamp shades can be designed freely by writing a Python program, but they are selected from thousands of possible designs because time is limited in the workshop. The workshop will be held in ICTCO, which is an incubation organization of Nakano, Tokyo.
