3D Modeling and Making: TUESDAYS

Tuesday, January 14, 2020

8:00 PM

INSTRUCTOR: Maddie Jacks

5th and up 

If you can think it, you can model it! Discover the ever evolving world of 3D modeling and making. Participants will be introduced to a variety of software tools for 3D modeling and then learn all about the machines, materials, and hands-on techniques to make these models. One is not enough? Learn how models can be reproduced in different 3D printing materials, on various machines or casted through mold-making.  


  • Learn about the 3D modeling design process 
  • Experience multiple 3D modeling software platforms including TinkerCad (regular and blocks mode) and Fusion 360 
  • Produce models via 3D printing, CNC carving and laser cutting 
  • Practice hand finishing projects using sand paper, paint, stain, glue 
  • Experiment with hydrodipping for graphics transfer onto 3D printed items 
  • Study the art of mold making and create a mold to make soap and chocolate!    


  • Tinkercad (regular and blocks coding) 
  • Fusion 360 and Fusion slicing software
  • Cura 3D printing software
  • Several types of 3D printers using PLA, Onyx and wood filament
  • CNC Carving machine
  • Laser cutter
  • Wood shop tools as needed  

This class meets on Tuesdays for 10 weeks. Class runs from 1/14-3/24. No class on 2/18
