Looking for an exciting engineering summer camp with an emphasis on design and practical skills? 3D printing teaches you how to build, modify and repair your own 3D printer. After building the printer, learn 3D design to make your own creations:
Juniors (ages 9-13) - learn how to use Tinkercad, an online 3D design tool perfect for younger campers to make everything from custom stamps to name tags and personalised figures. Then graduate to the SolidWorks App, to learn mesh modelling of organic forms, animals and landscapes.
Seniors (ages 13-17) - learn Autodesk Fusion 360, professional software used daily by engineers. Create your very own designs such as phone stands, lampshades and custom game pieces. If you finish all that (or are a Fusion expert already!), learn about organic forms, assemblies and renders, and complete some real-world product design tasks with 3D printed prototypes.
Take home your 3D printer, prints and designs to continue working at home.
- Build your own 3D printer from a high-quality all metal kit
- Find out how you can maintain and improve it at home
- Learn about 3D printing technologies and principles
- Learn 3D Design in Autodesk Fusion 360 or Tinkercad + SolidWorks
- Get to grips with the software through a range of impressive projects
- Add your own personal touches to your designs, and print them on your printer during the sessions
- Take your printer and all your projects home at the end!
