3D printing is a class which teaches students how to take a 3D model of something on a computer, and then use a 3D printer to create a real life version of the item.
Who is it for?
Are you 11-18 years old?
Do you want to learn 3D modeling?
Do you want to bring your creations to life?
Can you model it? Then you can print it.
Students learn 3D modeling using software such as, Autodesk123D or XYZWare. TeachME uses 3D printers designed for beginners so our students can focus more on the modeling than on fixing or maintaing a 3D printer. We will cover the important beginning concepts in 3D modeling during our class.
3D Printing Management
While our printers are made for beginners, there is still plenty to learn about 3D printers during class. Such things as, proper plate management, how to level the printing plate, proper safety techniques, and how to load filament. These are great skills for students to learn, and they are very important since 3D printing is becoming very important.
