Take your designs to another dimension in this newly revised major. Learn 3-D modeling essentials and professional techniques as you design characters, structures or your own personalized creations. Design custom prototypes, using web-based software Tinkercad to model them and in-class UP Mini printers to produce them. Gather feedback from your fellow modelers to refine your creations. Plan a presentation to share your experience at an end-of-session showcase, then take home your customized files and 3-D prints.
3-D Printing is an innovative technology that can be tricky to master. Some prints will inevitably collapse or come out imperfectly—it's all part of the design process. While we'll make sure you get plenty of hands-on practice, the experience may include failed prints.
Galileo Summer Camps are located in the Bay Area, Southern California and Chicagoland.
