Intro to 3D Printing & Design (2 day course)

3D Printing is an amazing breakthrough in manufacturing and prototyping, and it’s only getting better every day. Think about it: the International Space Station has a 3D printer now, so that instead of having to send a piece of equipment up on the next rocket (which costs millions of pounds), NASA just have to email it to them! Incredible! We’re going to get you set up on TinkerCAD, an online design program that is intuitive to use, friendly for all and supports any 3D printer on the market.

The purpose of this workshop is getting you not only 3D modelling and printing, but more importantly it’s about teaching you the design process itself, just like a real designer. We’ll help you get familiar with the basics of a design workflow; from brief or inspiration all the way through research, designing, prototyping to printing your finished product.
