3D Modeling, CAD & Printing
After you have completed the Sketchup lesson in Computer Science class in the 7th grade you may continue creating with Sketchup in Code Club. After you feel competent with Sketchup you may try learning some CAD (computer aided design) using Tinkercad. This should take you right in without a class code needed. Don't worry, the tutorials are not very long.
Read this: Do all seven of the lessons under the "Starters" tab and the several of the tutorials under the "Lessons" tab. Click "See all lessons" to see them all. Click here:Tinkercad tutorials. Then learn about aligning shapes by doing this tutorial.
After you feel comfortable with Tinkercad, then you will be ready to design something to print on the 3D printer!
