3D Printing Beginner
Price varies by location; price includes lab fee
3D printers work by following a computer’s digital instructions to “print” an object using materials such as plastic, ceramics and metal. The printing process involves building up an object one layer at a time until it’s complete. For instance, some 3D printers squirt out a stream of heated, semi-liquid plastic that solidifies as the printer’s head moves around to create the outline of each layer within the object.
In this camp, students will be introduced to the basics of 3D Design and Engineering. Students will be introduced to the design process through the CASTLE CHALLENGE. Our design program Tinkercad will allow students to see and design in 3D. A 3D Nametag will be the initial project followed by introduction to THINGVERSE a repository of usable designs. The week culminates through brainstorming, design, development of an individual project of choice!
