3-D Printing and Design with TinkerCAD Workshop - HANDS ON WORKSHOP

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
In this hands-on workshop participants will design and create files for 3D printing. Do you have a 3D printer or you are considering getting one? Now what? 3D printing can sound intimidating, especially when it comes to creating designs. Many teachers fall back on pre-made designs which are a good way to start but limits the creativity, problem-solving and innovation skills we want to develop in our students. In order for 3D printers to really open doors for our students, we need to look at Computer-aided design (CAD) tools. TinkerCAD is a free web-based 3D design tool. It is a great tool for beginners to advanced 3D designers. We will even explore how to create a 3D print from any drawing. This has some great applications for younger students and students with special needs. You will be amazed at what you and your students can create and print on a 3D printer.
