AT THAT (In-Person Only) Regular, 60 minute presentation
TinkerCad is a free online tool that both kids and parents can use to design and export 3D models. It is easy to use and fun to work with. In this session we'll walk through the basic core features of the tool to design some fun objects with the goal of 3D printing them in mind, as well as learn to take preexisting free 3D models and modify them to suit your needs. Finally we'll explain the standard steps in taking the 3D models you create and exporting them for use in a 3D printer.
