Program Description

Event Details

Learn how to design your own 3-D-printed pencil toppers! For ages 9 to 18, this class will teach the basics of 3D printing design. We'll create our Pencil Toppers together in class, then you'll be able to pick up your printed design in one to two weeks. 

In order to participate, you will need to make your own Tinkercad account before the class starts using tinkercad.com. Tinkercad is a free online 3D modeling program, and it is what we'll be using to make our design. Feel free to play around on it before class to familiarize yourself.

This program will meet on Zoom and requires registration. After registration, you will receive a confirmation email.
