Camp Description

Products and ideas used to take months of planning to become a reality, but not anymore with 3D Printing and Design! A camp dedicated to explaining the ins and outs of one of the most interesting areas in tech. 3D printing is a mode of product development that is fast, easy, and creative! Campers will be working throughout the week designing their own action figure set. Using a development style called rapid prototyping, campers will develop a product from a basic idea, to design models, to a finished product.

In this course you will

  • Learn 3D modeling
  • Work with product constraints (materials, object physics, sizing)
  • Learn project planning
  • Engage group feedback and critique
  • Utilize creative thinking
