3D Printing & CAD (online)
This 3D printing camp takes students through the 3D printing process from start to finish. Students will design 3D objects using TinkerCAD (online web app), and use the 3D slicing program Cura to bring their creations to life. From industrial design and manufacturing to software and hardware engineering, the 3D printing industry is booming. This course serves as an excellent introduction to 3D printing and is ideal for students who like to draw, design, imagine, and see their creations come to life. Students will be designing 1-2 objects, and the 3D print will be mailed home.
