Course Description

Do you have an idea for a 3D printed object but don’t know where to start? Unlock the world of 3D design and bring your vision to life with this crash course in foundational 3D printing and design. You’ll learn the essentials of CAD, the industry standard in 3D design software, and how to apply it to create your own unique design in just one week!

Refine your design in our Advanced Design for 3D Printing course the following week. At the end of the advanced course, our team will vote on the best design and the winning design will be printed by CoKreeate, a 3D Printing & Scanning services company. *

*The winning design may have to be modified based on the expertise of the designers at CoKreeate. The designers will work with the winner to make the design perfect under CoKreeate’s guidelines. General sizing guidelines: Sandstone: 7x7x7 inches, FDM: 8x10x8 inches, and Resin: 7x7x7 inches.
