3D Printing and Design STEM classes from CompuChild

3D Printing Technology and Design

The objective of this class is to introduce students to 3D printing technology while emphasizing the significance of good design principles.

Students will use 3D printing pens to design interesting objects, parts, and artwork while learning about additive manufacturing technology, its pros and cons as compared to traditional manufacturing methods.

Attention will be drawn to key design considerations related to aesthetics, structural stability, materials optimization, aspect ratio, ease of use, and functionality.

Students will be given specific themes to create their own designs before actually making those by using a 3D pen.
