Introduction to 3D Printing and Design for Adults

Our 3D printing classes for adults provide an introduction to designing in 3 dimensions. A MODA Instructor guides participants through the process of creating a simple 3D-printable object (such as a bracelet or phone stand) in a CAD program and preparing the file to be printed.  Participants learn:

  • how 3D printing works

  • how 3D printing is changing design processes and how it's impacting our world

  • the fundamentals of a basic CAD program

  • how to prepare files created in a CAD program to be 3D printed

Most of the class is spent designing objects for print. After participants leave their class session, MODA prints the objects they designed. Because print times can be several hours for each object, items will be ready for pick-up after approximately one week (larger classes may take longer).
