3D Design & Printing Programs

Activities & training for all levels.

Intro to 3D Printing

There are new applications for 3D printing every day!

This introductory class will give you an overview of 3D printing, the types and prices of printers and supplies in the marketplace, how to access basic software used for designs, and cool things you can do with 3D printing!

Learn about our 3D training programs along with career and industry opportunities with this amazing technology.

Level 1 3D Printing

This Level 1 course starts the first week of every month on Wednesday evenings or Saturday mornings.

Begin designing with TinkerCAD software to gain a basic understanding of the requirements, styles and structure of quality 3D printing.

Students will complete several 3D design projects in this 4-week course and prepare to expand their knowledge with the Level 2 course.

In this course students will begin designing with basic TinkerCAD software to gain an understanding of the requirements, styles and structure of quality 3D printouts.

Course Outline:

  • Week 1 (Class 1.1): The Basics of Additive Manufacturing (3D Printing)
  • Week 2 (Class 1.2): Introduction to TinkerCAD and Editing Objects
  • Week 3 (Class 1.3): Original Designs in TinkerCAD
  • Week 4 (Class 1.4): Advanced TinkerCAD Topics: Assemblies & Multi-Piece Prints

Students will complete several 3D design projects in this course and prepare to expand their knowledge with the Level 2 course. Keep your 3D creations, downloads and leave with a sound understanding of 3D printing.

If you are unable to make a scheduled session, it may be made up on the alternate day if space is available. Please register online to reserve your space, or make us aware of the change so we may do so for you.

COMPLETION OF LEVEL 1 3D PRINTING IS A PREREQUISITE FOR ANY LEVEL 2 SESSIONS

Go beyond tinkering with these in-depth Level-2 3D printing courses.  Move beyond the educational program, TinkerCAD, and onto Inventor, an industry standard software.

3D Printing Level 2: Modeling Practice as a Master Spy (May – June)

Your Mission: Explore 3D modeling and 3D printing to create your very own spy gadgets. Employ the engineering design process to design everything you need to be the world’s next super spy. Then use the creation tools in industry-grade CAD software to produce an assemblable multi-piece prints to add to your spy gear.
