Want to create your own models to 3D print in the Makers Lab?

Join Makers Lab staff for the second pop-up in a three-part series covering the basics of 3D design & modeling using the web-based application Tinkercad. This pop-up is for beginners, but all skills levels are welcome to attend.

Recommended prerequisite: 3D Printing Part 1

After attending the 90-minute pop-up you will be able to:

  • Design a basic 3D model in Tinkercad Export a model out of Tinkercad for 3D printing
  • Locate resources for continuing your learning with Tinkercad
  • Identify other 3D design & modeling software for more advanced projects

Make sure to sign up for a Tinkercad account before the pop-up and use a three-button if you have one available. You don't even need to download Tinkercad, it is a free, web-based application that you can use anywhere, as long as you have an internet connection.

Need to design 3D models with more complex geometries? Attend an upcoming Fusion 360 pop-up! Unsure if Tinkercad is the right software for your project? Contact Makers Lab staff for suggestions.

Can’t make it to this pop-up? Self-enroll in the Makers Lab On-Demand CLE course to watch the recording.
