TinkerCad and 3D Printing for Educators
In this hands-on workshop participants will design and create files
for 3D printing. Do you have a 3D printer or are you considering
getting one? Now what? 3D printing can sound intimidating, especially
when it comes to creating designs. Many teachers fall back on pre-made
designs which are a good way to start but limits the creativity,
problem-solving and innovation skills we want to develop in our
students. In order for 3D printers to really open doors for our
students, we need to look at Computer-aided design (CAD) tools.
TinkerCAD is a free web-based 3D design tool. It is a great tool for
beginners to advanced 3D designers. We will even explore how to create
a 3D print from any drawing. This has some great applications for
younger students and students with special needs. You will be amazed
at what you and your students can create and print on a 3D printer.
