Adult 3D Printing 101: Planters

  • MODA 1315 Peachtree Street Northeast Atlanta, GA, 30309 United States (map)

Join us on Sunday, April 29 from 3:30 – 5:30 p.m. for a special Introduction to 3D Printing Workshop, where we’ll be learning the ropes of 3D modeling by making our own planters!

Spring is just around the corner, so we’re designing our own planters. In this class you’ll get to create a unique planter design of your own to get 3D printed. Come with a few ideas and we’ll show you how to make your design a reality.

Whether you’re a wiz-kid on the computer or haven’t so much as opened a spreadsheet in eons, we will walk you through the basics of a browser-based 3D modeling program called Tinkercad. You’ll learn all you’ll need to know to design one planter to dazzle your friends with. By the end of the class your creation will be ready to go to print, and in just one week you’ll be able to pick it up at MODA.

Participation and Materials Fee: $35 for non-members, $30 for MODA members.
This fee covers everything you need to bring home your own 3D printed planter. Fee also includes admission to MODA’s current exhibition, Designing Playful Cities.

This workshop is appropriate for ages 16+.
