General Description

3D Printing and CAD – Future Skills course is designed to get teachers up to speed with this exciting new technology. Modfab has trained over 800 teachers from Primary, Secondary and TAFE, and we believe that we have a course that will empower educators to take 3D printing and CAD into their classrooms and pass these skills on to their students. It is a hands-on course which will provide you with the confidence to operate, maintain and troubleshoot a generic FDM (fused deposition modelling) 3D printer. All aspects of 3D model preparation and slicing are covered to enable teachers to produce great looking 3D prints. We train CAD using Tinkercad, an online application that has the most friendly and intuitive interface we have found. The course allows teachers to look for real world connections to their key learning areas when utilising this 21st-century technology.
