3D printers are one of the most widely applicable and fun inventions on the tech scene today! In 3D Printing: Superheroes to the Rescue, we will explore the basic concepts of 3D printing and computer-aided design, or CAD, to design and create our very own 3D printed superhero! Students will take their hand drawn design and learn how to extrude it into a 3D model that can then be modified to be printed in 3D. No discounts or vouchers.
