3D 101: Model, Sculpt & Architect
Class Overview

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 furniture, wrench or chess piece. Next, we’ll build in virtual clay, using Sculptris, and gain exposure to conceiving of 3D rounded surfaces as a collection of flat triangles or other 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!
