**Have your Final Design Printed! There is an optional add-on at checkout to have your design 3D printed and shipped to you for $30. Final designs approx 4in x 4in.
Special Requirements for this class
- Laptop, desktop, or Chromebook required (cannot use tablet or phone)
- Mouse (highly recommended)
- We will be working in a browser based program called TinkerCAD. We will manage your nerd’s account and set them up on the first day of class. No downloads or prep needed.
- No 3D printer needed. If you do have a 3D printer at home, skip the $30 final print add-on and print it yourself! TinkerCAD exports in standard .stl format that will work with any machine.
The 3D design process starts with a 3D Model or Design where the computer file with details about your model must be converted into computer 2D “slices” which the printer will print layer by layer. Depending on the complexity and size, printing a 3D object can take hours or even days to complete.
Enjoy a quick welcome from TinkerCAD. Your nerd's design space where they will be able to create their own 3D design.
