3-D Printing Basics: Bookmarks

  • Overview

    Learn how to design your own 3-D Prints! Join us for a Zoom class teaching the basics of using the free online software called Tinkercad to design a bookmark model.  A week after our class you will be able to come pick up your printed projects.

    This program is best for ages 9-16, has limited space & requires registration.  After registration, you will receive a confirmation email with the link & password to the Zoom meeting.  You will need to make your own Tinkercad account before the class starts using  Feel free to play around on it before class to familiarize yourself.

    One print will be created free to class participants along with a set of examples for coordinates/infill for future design. A follow up class will be scheduled for those wishing to learn more.
