Intro to 3D Modeling for Kids (Ages 8-13)

Saturday, December 8, 2018

Have you ever wanted to make a piece of high-tech jewelry or a model spaceship - or just learn how to make something using a 3D printer? Join us to learn how to 3D print your own designs! This class is designed specifically to make it easier for kids, ages 8-13, to get into 3D printing. This workshop will take them through designing and building their very own 3D printed object. They'll learn how to make a 3D model using 3D CAD, and how to use a 3D printer to make their designs. Please bring your own laptop if you have one, there are only a few available from HATCH. If you have one, please try to also bring a 3 button mouse (left and right buttons + a scroll wheel in the middle). The software we will be using is called SculptGL. It is a free 3D modeling application that runs in the browser and you do not need to register for an account. This workshop is for children ages 8-13 who have basic computer skills. Parents of children under 12 must accompany children in the worksho
