Learning Objectives: Students will learn basic principles of CAD and sculpture design.
Materials Needed: One computer, modeling software, one Micro or Micro+ 3D printer, and at least one 250ft spool of 3D Ink per 2-5 students.
Brief Description: Students will use modeling software to design and print a 3D printable sculpture.
To Prepare: Students will need a computer that has the M3D software on it. We recommend one printer per every 2-5 students. The Micro or Micro+ 3D printer will need to be plugged into both the wall and the computer. Each printer will need to have a spool of 3D Ink feeding into the external port. A spool holder is also recommended.
If you need assistance with any of the above please see our guides at support.printm3d.com.
1. Either individually or in small groups, students will use modeling software to design a unique sculpture.
2. Students will then print out their sculptures.
3. Students can paint their sculptures if they’d like.
