3D Printing and Design - Portland2
Did you ever wonder how people made all those cool 3D objects? Whether board game pieces or parts of a machine, these parts start as an idea in your imagination, then turned into a 3D object on a computer, and finally are printed on a 3D printer. At the 3D Design and Printing Camp you’ll do all of these things AND build and take home your own 3D printer! Learn the basics of 3D design using SketchUp or TinkerCAD; save your designs and then export them to the 3D printer.
For 2022 we're looking at either the Ender 3 Pro with the auto leveling kit or the Ender 3 Pro V2, but it's too early to see which one will in budget come the spring and which one will be available. Maybe we'll get lucky and be able to do the Ender 3 Pro V2 AND the auto leveler.
Learn about calibrating the machines; starting and finishing the print; fixing errors; and all the details that make 3D printing both challenging and rewarding. At the end of the week you get to take home your new printer, all the cool things you’ve created, even some 3D filament to use!
Open to ages 12 to 16.
