There's a 3D modeler hidden in all of us - longing to create prints that will blow your mind. In this start to finish class - or as we call it - sketch to print class - students will learn the process to build their own 3D printed models. No prior knowledge or 3D printer required. We provide all of the tools and all you need is your creativity! Here's a high-level overview of what this new class will look like:

  • introduction to the overall concept of 3D printing and how the printer works
  • sketch a design on paper
  • convert sketch to 2D image in Procreate
  • convert image to 3D image in Tinkercad
  • slice image using Prusa and learn which settings are the most common
  • export gcode to printer
  • print model and bring it home***

*** Important Note: Printing may not be finished by the end of camp, especially if there are any tweaks on the last day, because it takes hours to do one small print and we might not get all of the printing done before the end of the class. However, the studio is open every weekday and we will figure out a plan before the end of class to make sure all students get their prints.

What To Bring to Camp:

  • Bring a cold lunch and a water bottle
  • Long hair should be tied back away from their faces
