3D Model, Sculpt, & Architect

Does your child have a budding interest in architecture, construction, or engineering buildings and structures? Or, are they more interested in sculpting, 3D art, and 3D printing? We’ve got the class for you! In this program, students will explore three essential and complementary ways to design in three dimensions. We’ll start with Tinkercad, where we will apply the concept of Constructive Solid Geometry towards designing a solid, often linear and symmetrical object — such as chess pieces or a cartoon koala. Next, we’ll build in virtual clay, using SculptGL, a web tool, and gain exposure to conceiving of 3D rounded surfaces as a collection of flat polygons (mesh geometry). And, last, we will explore larger 3-dimensional spaces, with both internal and external design elements, by architecting houses using Sweet Home 3D. This is a super fun class that brings together the best in STEM and art!
