3D Design and Print Creation

Designed for those who are keen to create digital designs that can be turned into physical objects, this course provides a general overview of product design and what it takes to create 3D products from virtual designs to physical fabrication. Students will develop the skills to produce sketches, translating them from 2D to 3D in CAD software and finally see their designed products 3D printed.

  • Understand how sketches can be translated from 2D to 3D software file.
  • Produce surfaces in 3D software to produce a shape or form for a product.
  • Use of 3D printing technology to feel the final 3D form of a designed product from virtual to physical realisation.
  • Appreciate the unlimited ways in which 3D printing technology can be used, and its potential benefits to hobbyists, innovators and industries.
