Intro to 3D Design

Online Workshop

Register for this workshop on eventbrite. 

Learn the basics of TinkerCAD, a simple online computer aided design app, and start creating your own designs to 3D print.

We'll go through placing shapes, moving them, adjusting the size and orientation, customising shapes and combining shapes to make anything you want. TinkerCAD is a perfect tool for those who have no experience in 3D design and want to wrap their heads around the basics before moving on to more advanced programmes like Autodesk Inventor and Solidworks.
