3D Modeling with Tinkercad

Julia Somma


Presenter: Julia Somma

Friday April 15th, 2022 in BUSN 391

2:30 - 4:00pm

This skillshare covered the basic skills required to create a 3D model and correctly format the gcode so it can be printed. Students were presented with information on 3D Tech such as what it is, the basics of how it works, its applications, and common software that they can use to create prints and models. They then went through a step by step process of applying these skills to make their own model on TinkerCAD before exporting and formatting the gcode in the MakerBot Desktop application.
