Adventures in 3D Printing & Modeling
Creating has undergone an incredible evolution in the last decade as 3D printing capabilities continue to rapidly evolve. Whether fixing your favorite toy’s broken part or building your 3D printed city this course will empower students with the fundamental understanding and experience with the software and hardware that are responsible for custom 3D printing.
Students will spend the week using a CAD (computer-aided design) software program called Tinkercad and learning how to break down real-world objects into 3D shapes. They’ll also learn about the 3D printing process, taking the objects from Tinkercad and setting them up for printing in an application called Cura, and then printing them on the Ultimaker 2+ printers. Each student will leave camp with four custom-designed 3D-printed objects.
