3D Printing/Rapid Prototyping
Introduction to 3D Printing equips students with the knowledge and skills necessary to print their own or ready-made 3D models on an FDM 3D printer. Students are introduced to the benefits of 3D printing, and the role that the Internet plays by allowing 3D models to be shared and printed around the world. Students learn how to operate typical 3D printing software. The course covers the most important printing considerations, including layer thickness, orientation, support, and in-fill. Students are also exposed to common design tools, enabling them to create and print their own models.
As you can see from the outline, this is a very comprehensive 15 hour course. The level is for middle or high schoolers and includes self-paced lessons in LearnMate, worksheets and review tests throughout. The course is generic and will introduce students to the principles and design factors of using 3D printers on any printer and with any design software.
