3D Printing 1, 2, 3 (Grades 5+)
Learn how to Design and Print images in 3D!
Design your very own fidget spinner! We’ll learn about tolerances, bearings, friction, aerodynamics and materials as we create our own specially designed spinners. You will learn fundamental 3D modeling skills as you design and print your own unique three dimensional creations. We will take you through the 3D printing process from beginning to end, including the parts of the printer, different types of plastic filament, and how to set up, calibrate and operate a 3D printer. You can make school mascot keychains, phone holders, tools, cars, cup holders, cookie cutters, safes, ornaments, planters, storage containers, trivets, building models (like the Eiffel Tower), or just about any gizmo you can imagine! With each level of the class, the designs get more complex and complicated, requiring more in depth knowledge of CAD/CAM modeling.
