3D printers are becoming versatile tools in classrooms and prototyping labs, and get more common in regular households. We want to give everyone the chance to experience this new tool.
In this course we will use 3D modeling software to create designs that are ready to be printed on a 3D printer. We will review the fundamentals of 3D printing and guide you through the first steps of making your own designs.
In the course we will also review a 3D design for a toy boat that can be used as a starting point to participate in the boat race later the same week. Click here to learn more about the Dhow Boat Race.
3D printers will be available to enable you to actually print your designs during the course and throughout the week.
