About

Ever wondered how 3D printers work? Perhaps you’re interested in how game designers make all the weird and wonderful creatures and landscapes in your favourite game? Come along and wonder no more as we answer your questions in this exciting journey into the realms of 3D design – a wonderful and creative technological world where you can make your very own 3D creations.

We’ll explore how 3D printing works and cover the foundations of 3D design in TinkerCAD – a free to use web-based tool that encourages creativity and critical thinking. Your educator will take your through challenges designed to turn you into a skilled 3D ninja designer – no prior experience necessary! We’ll explore new methods and strategies each session so you can practice honing your design skills and customise and personalise your designs.

  • Creating 3D objects from scratch
  • Things to consider whilst designing
  • Manipulating objects in a 3D environment
  • Basics of 3D printing and how 3D printers work
  • Using the Shape library
