What our students say about us :

“I have always thought learning AutoCAD will be difficult, and it will take a long time to master it. So I never got started. But I was wrong. Cad Design Centre made the learning of AutoCAD very easy to understand for me, even at my age” Ramli Baharudin, ASJ Consulting Sdn Bhd

“My office had Microsoft project, and very few of our employees knew how to use it. As I frequently depended on others to plan and enter the data for the project, I decided to learn it myself. In 2 days, Cad Design Centre thought the simple way to manage projects with Microsoft Project, and I am very happy with my new learning. I could quickly use what I learnt, in my office” – Mr C.H. Yap

Training in Asia Pacific University (Apiit)

I was invited recently to Asia Pacific University (Apiit) to do a training for their Engineering students on CAD (Computer Aided Design) AutoCAD and also 3D Printing.  The students were from various years, and from various Engineering fields and also part of their Engineering Club. The students were very bright, attentive and asked many questions, including about 3D Printing.

Here are some pics from the Class..

Company in China prints 10 houses in 24 hours

While we are all coping up with the recent new technology that is 3d Printing, here in Malaysia, our neighbour China has already started experimenting with 3d printed apartment houses. They recently displayed the buildings in the Su Zhou Industrial park, not too far away from Shanghai.

The building stands five-stories and encompasses an area of 1,100 square meters. The best part is the material used for 3d printing is recycled construction waste, coupled with quick forming cement. Not only that the technology brings houses to readiness fast, it is pretty environment friendly too, something that I love about this company.

The company that does this is WinSun Decoration Design Engineering Co, based out of Shanghai. It is the brainchild of Ma Yihe, who has been a pioneer in 3d printing of buildings in China.

From information given in WinSun’s website and the video, it is shown that the printer creates pieces by laying the frame and sides of the hollow walls and after that filling it in with a crisscross design, with material inserted to give fortification. The organization says that design is controlled by a CAD Program. Very similar to how our current 3d printers print small models with plastic right on our desktop, except here it much much bigger, the printer head extrudes wet cement instead of  molten plastic.

Their current modus is to 3d print the big parts in their own factory and then sent them to the site, where it is assembled. So, you don’t really get a massive big printer on site. I suppose it is a matter of time, before the technology get’s to this point, especially when you need to construct larger number of houses.

Looking forward to have a 3d printed houses done right here in Malaysia sometime soon, with our own Malaysian born talent!

3d modelling for the young – Anton and Ka Hou

Anton ( 10 years old) and Ka Hou (13 years old) busy working on their 3d Models. Some of the items they modelled include aircraft carriers, battleships, fighter planes and rockets.  After designing, they had their models 3d printed.

Some pictures of them in action here:

3D Modelling Class for the family- Abas Family

We had a lot of fun in our recent class, with Mr Abas, and his two young children. We modelled and played with a lot of 3D drawings and models. Some of the items modelled were warships, Key chains and fighter aircrafts. And 3d printed all the items at the end!


Cad classes for the young – Ka Hou and Ejaz

Ka Hou and Ejaz, both 13 years old, were very keen in modelling. Both had an interest in games, Tinkering, robotics, and modelling. Here they are pictured coming up with Computer Aided Design 2D models. Both came up with unique Bicycle and House models. Great work, guys!

3D Printing Funny Video

A really funny video about 3D Printing.

A really funny video about 3D Printing.

Found this video about 3d printing really funny. Of course, the video is super exaggerated. 3d printers definitely do not print this fast, and they definitely don’t print out items just like this. It could take 5 hours, just to print  an object like a small  toy car.  And there would be a lot of extra prints that need to be cleaned out.

3D printing, this is definitely not, but definitely good for laughs!

Speaking at the Makers Week, Project Renaissance, Mind Valley – part 1 of 4

I was invited to speak at the recent Makers Week in Mind Valley, UOA Bangsar. My topic was 3D Printing in the fields of Education, in Malaysia and other parts of the World. I enjoyed the very interactive audience, the camaraderie and company of my fellow speakers.

Here are some of the pictures taken on the day – Part 1 – Photos by Jimmy Kho, and Project Renaissance

Makers Week in KL this Oct 11th for a week!

The Maker’s week is finally here, yes!!! I love in all ways, the need to make and create things. Will be speaking in this event too, to highlight the educational uses of 3D Printing, and how it can help Education in Malaysia.

Here is an excerpt from the event website:

The Makers Week 2014

First of its kind—The Makers Week takes place on October 11th to 17th, 2014 in the vibrant city of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The key speaking events will be in Bangsar, UOA Building.  The Makers Week 2014 focuses on 3D Printing to bring together industry experts, hobbyists and enthusiasts to educate and give awareness of 3D printing technology and how it is impacting our everyday lives.

During the week-long event of The Makers Week 2014, each day will specifically focus on an industry that 3D printing technology is profoundly impacting such education, healthcare, engineering, fashion, design, and more. In collaboration with our international and local partners, there will be live talks and showcases of actual 3D objects based on case studies, as well as hands-on workshops to demonstrate how 3D printers work and how to design in 3D.

I’ll be also speaking on Day 2 (Oct 12th, 2pm) – on 3D Printing and Education in Malaysia

Buttercup the Duck and 3D printing

I love these kind of stories.. The use of 3D printing shouldn’t be just limited to printing novelty items. Am looking forward to more actual practical uses like this, to be implemented, especially in Malaysia.

“Buttercup is an amazing duck, hatched with a deformed left foot. This new design features a movable ankle with plastic springs for support, tread on the bottom for grip, and a new sock retainer on the back! This entire foot is printed on a 3D printer unlike his 1st prosthetic prototype which was made using a hybrid 3D printing/urethane molding process.”

Seen here, is Buttercup, a duck which had a birth defect and could not walk properly. With the help of a 3D designed and 3D printed leg, Buttercup could start to walk again. Hooray!
