3D Design and Fabrication

Enter the exciting world of rapid prototyping! 3D Printers are almost commonplace in schools, libraries, and even our own homes. However, many people don’t understand this technology or how to take advantage of it. In 3D Design and Fabrication you will learn how to properly design for 3D printing and develop a basic understanding of the printing process. We will also introduce molding and casting techniques that will allow for faster and stronger construction. Through these processes, you will gain a deeper level of understanding and appreciation for what these amazing machines can do.

You will learn:

  • How 3D printers function, and how to operate and troubleshoot them
  • Design concepts specific to 3D printing
  • Reproduction techniques that will speed up your creative process
