Design Files for 3D Printing
Whether you are making functional parts to repair a broken drawer handle or making toys for your schoolmates, Tinkercad is a great tool to help you learn how to think in 3 dimensions. Tinkercad is free and easy to learn.
While Tinkercad is the simplest form of 3D modeling, by using primitive shapes to create larger structures, it is still a precise and capable form of modeling.
In this class you can expect to learn how to create shapes that you want to print or manufacture. You will also learn how to combine shapes to create new models. Tinkercad allows you to also constrain your shapes to very precise measurements.
September 30 from 10a to noon. Join us for a chance to learn how to use this great tool.
Who Might be Interested?
This class is designed for those who want to bring 3D ideas to reality. You don’t even need a 3D printer to enjoy creating 3D designs.
The class is limited to 10 students per session.
Age: 12 and up. Students under 19 years old must be accompanied by an adult (but you only need to pay for the student).
What to Bring
This is a class using computer software. You should plan bring your own computer. Linux, Mac, Windows or Chromebook will work fine. There is no software to install. However, please register for a free account at tinkercad.com before class. We do have computers available for students who do not have one.
It is not obligatory, but you will find that having a mouse with 3 buttons gives much more precise control than relying only on a computer touchpad.
