3D printing has become a popular tool in the maker community as well as in educational settings in recent years. It is not only used to make toys, prototype engineering projects or teach geometry and math, but you can make anything you want with limitless possibilities. This 10-hour workshop will introduce you to 3D modelling with various softwares, the intricacies that can go with printing a model in 3D as well as other technologies like 3D scanning, time permitting. You will learn 3D modelling from scratch with primitive and more advanced softwares, to edit an existing 3D model for your needs, to use 3D printer slicers to obtain a successful print, the fundamental mechanics of a FDM (Fused Deposition Modeling) 3D printer and some finishing processes for 3D prints.
